Kentucky Color: Gilled mushrooms, Harvey's Ridge, KY
Mushrooms might be called 'plant vultures' as they grow on decaying plant material
The next earlier Kentucky Color is Sugar Maple leaves have wide color variationBy Billy Joe Fudge, President, Homeplace on Green River, Inc.

Fungi expert I am not, but I love the form and color of these Harvey's Ridge mushrooms living and thriving in late fall. There are many thousands of kinds of mushrooms some with stems and some without living around us year round.
These mushrooms are growing on a dead Black Walnut on one of Jimmy Reliford's farms in Adair Co., KY.
It is amazing how the death for one can be life for another. I guess we could call mushrooms "plant vultures" since, primarily, they grow on rotting, decaying plant material.
Shelf fungi and mushrooms can grow on living trees and is usually an indicator that there is some dead and rotting wood on the interior of the tree. If you have fungi growing on a living tree you might want to give your tree a check up for your trees health and your safety.
