Fungi haiku

Fungi in the yard
growing through the cedar chips
emerge with the rain.

It fills me with joy
to wander in the garden
new things all the time.

I have no clue what type of mushrooms these are, but with the recent (and continuing) rain, they are popping up all over the back yard. The furry looking heads start to poke through, and then they split in to a spiky flower looking head.
Wandering in the garden always brings new discoveries.  

I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes... and decided as a challenge for myself, I'll be creating Haiku every "Hump Day".
