Early Morning Walk

Today, I got up around eight in the morning to take a stroll and look for any life of fungi. The morning was wet and cold, around 58ish degrees Fahrenheit. As I walked towards the recreation center, I notice that their was moss and lichen on the rock wall near Conte Forum. Although moss is consider a plant, I understand that lichen is part fungi and part plant. When I made my way to the recreation center, I quickly walked to the wooded area behind the building and notice several different forms of mushroom growing there. Each patch of the woody area had different kinds of mushroom and I did my best to categorize them. The most interesting mushroom I saw there was the cauliflower mushroom, which looked like white sponges on the ground.

Sunny Walk around Lower Campus

Today was a sunny day with a nice mild temperature of 73 degrees Fahrenheit. The sun was out and the skies were clear of clouds. Since I was done with classes for the day, I decided to a stroll around lower campus and tried to look for flowers. The temperature in Massachusetts was getting lower, so many plants were wilting away for the oncoming winter. So I was surprised to see some flowering plants remaining. The flowering plants I observed, orange coneflower and hawkweeds, are all examples of angiosperms. The moss I saw growing between sidewalk cracks are examples of bryophyta, or nonvascular plants. It was nice to see so much diversity in plant life even as the temperature gets lower.
