Ahh the aroma… fresh warm earth… slightly woody.
Musty with warm brown overtones...
Then a crisp clean crack as I delve into her very being...
...revealing her underbelly...
...a delicate organza of pin-tucked petticoat lining milky white flesh.
Her delicate folds creased like rivulets on an alluvial plane
Such is this delicate beauty of the puffball
The wildly attractive mushroom.
