Brown conical mushrooms sprout yesterday in the park under a cherry laurel
The large cherry laurel just east of Masonic is a real survivor. Our park has quite a few laurels, but none like this. From time to time, people leave trash in there and cut into or gouge the trunk with metal and glass. When I visited the park yesterday, I saw that one of its large branches was pulled down to the ground and the branch was cracked. That was hard to see.
It cheered me up to turn around and find mushrooms sprouting from wood chips we spread around the tree in February.
