Some Strange Names For Mushrooms...!

You might not believe just how many strange names there are for certain mushrooms. I don't know who had the job of giving them all these unusual names, but it must have been quite a chore.

Turquoise Elfcup, Hairy Parachute, Cinnamon Jellybaby, Weeping Toothcrust, Witches’ Butter, Elbowpatch Crust, Hairy Nuts Disco, King Alfred’s Cakes, and Chicken of the Woods are all names of mushrooms.

You can read about plenty more names by going right here.

Coffee inside again today.

I never knew there were so many names for mushrooms. My guess is a bunch of kids thought up these names. Very high humidity here again today, so kitchen sounds good. Thanks for the muffins Mamahen.
