Ken Holmes recently found a beautiful wild mushroom, the edible Agaricus augustus, also known as The Prince. It grows in humus rich soils. Oddly enough it often appears at edges of roads. The mushroom has a strong almond odor and it is good to eat. I also admire it for its beauty.
Thanks to Ken for allowing me to share his photo with you. Here's a link to another photo of this mushroom on this blog: http://www.mendonomasightings.com/2011/06/11/royalty-has-arrived-on-the-mendonoma-coast-the-prince-agaricus-augustus-a-delicious-mushroom/
