Re: Hen of the Wooods?

It took some looking but I do see the gills. I'm wondering if they didn't grow in that spot. When the OP says they popped up in the yard I guess that could mean anywhere in the yard? Although they do not look like they've been picked off of a tree and then put in the grass for a photo. There must be buried wood in the yard but that just doesn't make sense for any P. ostreatus I've encountered. I find P. ostreatus on upright dead or nearly dead and sometimes pretty healthy looking trees, not on severely decomposed wood buried in the ground.

It would be nice if Mushroom Jack would give his opinion.
