It's November, and mushrooms are popping up everywhere (so why are a Rhodo and an Azalea in our garden flowering?) However, this message is to show off one of the more spectacular mushrooms, Gymnopilus spectabilis, which pops out, not up.  Our local mountainside Park has many thousands of trees, but I have seen this beautiful big, bright yellow mushroom on only one. It tends to produce a group of fruit bodies, but as you can see in the pictures, it has outdone itself here...
