Hi everyone and welcome to a fantastic Monday and new week! Today's post is entitled The Fungus Files and it has been years in the making.
For the past couple of years I have been snapping pictures of mushrooms growing around Kuantan. They have been taken in various places, sometimes as I was walking in the afternoon, sometimes when out riding my bicycle and some of them while admiring the beauty at Taman Gelora, the beautiful park in Kuantan.
I became rather fascinated with mushrooms during this time and did a lot of research on them too. The one piece of information which stood out to me is that the presence of mushrooms beside a tree tells us that the tree is healthy and growing well. The mushrooms release nutrients into the earth which help to protect the tree and encourage its growth.
So, as a tree-lover, here is my 4-day tribute to mushrooms! Hope you enjoy it :)
Unfortunately, what's left of the tree is a stump . . .
But the mushrooms still look fantastic!

Stay tuned for Part 2 of The Fungus Files tomorrow!
