Blue Oyster Cult Mushrooms

Hello there!  Why, yes – this IS my first post of 2015!  Actually, that’s not true.  It’s my first post of 2015 for Fuzzy Undertones, but I have been quite busy with my other website, which also has a blog.  You can check it out HERE (hint hint…yes, please go check it out!!!).  In the meantime, here are some pictures of that time way back in January when I accidentally received a blue oyster mushroom kit and ended up watching them grow over the course of about a week.

Even though I can’t stand eating mushrooms (bleck!), I am mesmerized by their life cycle.  And this isn’t the first time I documented mushroom growth…remember that time when one of my houseplants decided to grow yellow parasol mushrooms?  So very mesmerizing!  I swear, you could see them grow by the hour.  And the colors were amazing!  Have you ever grown mushrooms, intentionally or not?

And for those of you who were expecting to see a little more cowbell in this post, here you go:

    • Hi Lola and Sasha! Woohoo! Thanks for stopping by my blog. This was the last post I wrote, about a year and a half ago! Sad! But I’ve been writing other things, namely cat stuff, because I’m a cat behaviorist helping cats with their people issues (shhh – the people think issues are the result of cat mischief, but most of the time it’s because of stuff people do). I actually stumbled upon your blog a couple of weeks ago when I was doing a bit of research on petting aggression – I loved your “cat maps” of petting zones! Say, what kind of fungus was that in your post? I’m not a huge fan of eating mushrooms, but I do think they are fascinating to watch because they grow so fast and oddly. Thanks for writing! ❤

      • You’re a cat behaviourist?!? That is soooo cool! Would you like to write a guest post on our blog next week? You coluld write about helping cats with their people issues.

        P.S the mushroom Lola was licking in the blog is called: shaggy ink cap mushroom in English. In Norwegian it is called: Matblekksopp which means Food ink mushroom.

        • Hi Lola and Sasha! Sorry for my delayed response – the last couple of weeks have been insane! I would love to write a guest blog for you – that would be FUN! Do you have any particular topic you would like me to write about, or a story, or anything else? Or, would you want to do an interview format? You could email me questions, and I’ll send my answers and photos, etc. back. That might be fun, too, since we could talk about all kinds of things. Let me know if that’s something you’d like to do! Keep up the excellent blogging – you get two paws up from me! 😀

I get all giddy when you leave me comments! Tell me what you think!
