"Blue Monday ~Mushroom~ ;>o???
6 to 8" across! Stem 1" thick. I Have never in my whole Life seen a Big Blue Mushroom like this! I am Flabbergasted ;>O ~I Believe it may be Lactarius Indigo!! According to my books on mushrooms of North America!
We Went for a long hike in Beaman Park in Northern Davidson County and after walking 5 or 6 miles and seeing unlimited varieties of unusual fall mushrooms, we spotted this not 100 feet from the car.
Shocked but enthralled, we took quite a few photos, and here are two!
