Fungi and no, Alex, I don't know what kind of fungi!

All enjoyed on an August day At The Farm.

Wonderful series from the farm! I have seen the first Indian Turnip before, I did not know the name. The purple flowers are pretty. Have a happy day!

Well, I just combed the Internet and couldn't figure out what they were either. I'll let it slide this time...

I have no idea what each one is but I'd have fun photographing them! Have a great day. And happy September!

Indian Turnip is a beauty . . .
And a first for me . . .

Aww Alex an inquisitive mind.

Love nature although in my yard it's an ongoing battle, keeping it from swallowing my house.

Well these are certainly lovely photo's and the colours in each one just lovely to look at and enjoy.

Indian Turnip what a lovely shade of red and by contrast those purple flowers are lovely too.

Thanks for sharing and Happy September to you - hope it is a good month for you.

All the best Jan

Splendid indeed.

I would have guess Jack in The Pulpit for the first one...but you never know.

If that is Ginseng, dig up those roots. I hear they go for around $1000 a pound.

Blessings to you all. ♥

Indian Turnip is another name for Jack-in-the-pulpit; I've learned something new today.

We have had so much rain followed by heat and humidity this summer. Consequently, there have been all kinds of fungi popping up. Many that I have never seen. I think they are fascinating and odd in their beauty.

I am working on getting back on track here. I hope I can stay there!

i'm not good on knowing names so much either, but I do know all your photos are of incredible finds, even if not edible! Mushroom hunting is something I only do with pros!
