Nature walk, Friday 16 October 2015

Today when we went on our Nature Walk, which is part of how we educate our children. We use a Waldorf type of approach. We were looking for mushrooms this morning. We also always take our dog with us, two things at the same time. The dog gets a walk and we get to discover what nature has to offer. We found quite an amount of mushrooms. Unfortunately we know nothing about mushrooms yet, but we would really like to learn some day. We will probably go do a workshop on it next year.
Anyone who can tell me which ones we saw, based on the pictures, please feel free to leave a comment. We love learning about them.

1. This mushroom was growing on a place where a branch of a birch tree had broken off. The birch tree was dead.

 2. Same mushroom on the birch tree

3. Same tree, but this mushroom was much higher up on the tree. Gorgeous.
 4. Another picture of the same one. I think this one may be the same type of mushroom as the one in picture 1 and 2.
5. This one we found somewhere on the soil where there were lots of pine trees.
