It is late fall and though there’s less and less mushrooms that I can find, the ones I do find make some purty compositions with fall colors all complimenting each other and stuff. The deep reds, browns, oranges and yellows make me feel cozy.

Ravenel’s stinkhorn, Phallus ravenelii, is popping up in Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and front yards of houses in Crown Heights in the fall. I hatch a Ravenel’s stinkhorn egg on the windowsill of our room. It fascinates me for days. Check out the slideshow to see pics from this endeavor.
Is it hot in here or what?! Here is a picture of a sliced open egg. Apparently, the Ravenel’s stinkhorn is all smushed in the egg as is. It pops and expands when it absorbs water. Weird! If you’ve smelled these, I’d be curious to hear what you think they smell like. I am too embarrassed to say.
