Nature doesn’t advertise…

Nature doesn’t have its own sponsors — in the media — telling us to be less materialistic and to travel less (thereby using less fossil fuels); but big, materialistic corporations have plenty of promoters making earth-damaging practices seem “OK” and “normal.”   We truly need to go beyond the advertising propaganda.

[Honey mushrooms along rocks on the river bank.  Honey mushrooms, like most mushrooms, are just the visible fruiting body of the fungus.  The main part of the organism is underground and is called the mycelium.  Mycelium can spread for many miles… and this accounts for mushrooms being some of the world’s largest organisms.  It is estimated that some honey mushrooms (that are very large, over many miles) are over 400 years old. (My photos, by the way, are all taken locally; I don’t travel any appreciable distance to take my photos. For instance, one walked to where these mushrooms were photographed.)]

Honey Mushrooms are called Honey Mushrooms for a good reason!  These mushrooms are edible.  I used to go mushroom-hunting with adults (when i was a child); beware… there are very dangerous mushrooms that are not Honey Mushrooms, though they look much like them.  The visible part of the mushroom is only a small part of the organism.  The main body of the mushroom is called the mycelium… and it can spread for miles.  Some Honey Mushrooms are estimated to be over 400 years old.
