Soft beige flesh perched atop a stout curved trunk, this was the largest mushroom I have ever seen growing. It was about 20 feet off our driveway, growing out of the edge of an old stump. Its diameter reached close to the size of my two hands spread out. It was the perfect spot for a diminutive Alice in Wonderland character to be standing under. I looked, but there was no one other than a small, smartly dressed toad that came from my imagination.
