Near Out Back

Near the edge of the Pt. Washington State Forest, to the east of Eastern Lake, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida in December, 2011, I found earthballs.

I first found an "earth flower" in 2009. Since then they have not appeared in the same places each year, but have progressively sprung up closer to my home. Here is a chronological list:

In fall 2011, I've watched fungi, but haven't reported on them. Generally they have not reappeared in the same places, but similar ones come up in other places. In 2012, some earthballs reappeared in the same swale. See also Puffball Watch. Back to Eastern Lake.
