These orange mushrooms are all over the stumps of the boulevard elms. They're beautiful, especially glazed with rain. Like sweet buns.

I've been collecting them all month with my camera, feeling a familiar mix of joy and regret. The joy of seeing mushrooms anywhere anytime. The regret at seeing them, because it means that the City of Winnipeg is behind on removing the stumps of big old elms, falling because of Dutch Elm Disease or  just old age.

Other years, the stumps were removed the same season the trees were cut down.
