Botanical journaling – June Mushrooms

Drawings of mushrooms in the sketchbook after three weeks of almost non-stop raining. A very wet June…
I found little Mycena and Split gill mushrooms in the garden on a dead wood of Prunus cerasus and Auricularia auricula-judae (the wood ear mushroom) on a branch wood supporting a young tree of Prunus persica var. nucipersica. On my regular walks in the Simeria Arboretum I found the mushrooms of Macrolepiota procera and Coprinopsis atramentaria. I`ve read that the black liquid that the inky cap releases after being picked was once used as ink. I should try that next time.
