Mushroom love

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.
