Mushrooms Grow on Forest Stump

Each Sunday, we'll post a photo of Temple Terrace nature from someone in the community as our Sunday Nature Photo.

If you’ve ever heard about the beauty of the fairy-tale forests in Europe, I can tell you that the stories are true.

One of my best friends lives in Finland, and I was lucky enough to travel there last year for a visit. We explored the city of Helsinki and its suburbs, but we also ventured to her sister’s summer cottage in the woods.

There, I felt like I had been transported to the world of Snow White or Sleeping Beauty. The forest was almost magical, saturated with gorgeous colors and thriving with vegetation and toadstools.

I was reminded of my trip last week when I was walking my dogs near my house and came across this tiny stump with mushrooms growing from it.

It seemed a tiny piece of the forest had found me in Temple Terrace.

Do you have a local nature photo you’d like to share? Email it to ashley.reams@patch.com and it could be featured on a future Sunday.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Confucius Thank you Ashley for sharing the picture and the visualization of that forest. Both are beautiful.
