growing on the verge

growing on the verge 
between sidewalk and street
big white cap mushrooms

World Photography Day, had to take some photos. Two white discs on the green grass between street and sidewalk in town. Paper plates? No, BIG mushrooms! Each shaggy spotted cap, nearly flat, the width of my spread fingers. Perched on a thick stalk with a ragged ring where the cap detached. The center of the cap, a brown nipple. The underside radiating cream colored gills. I check the base, no sack, so not Death Angel. Appears to be a Shaggy Parasol. Certainly thick enough to make a meal. But I leave them undisturbed. I probably look pretty funny down on my knees, bent over, smartphone in hand. Maybe searching for Pokemon!
