The Puffball Mushrooms have started coming out. It looks like it’s going to be a prolific year for Puffballs.

Puffballs get their name from the way they release their spores. When you find one that is past its’ prime, push on the top of the mushroom and a puff of spores will come out, it looks a little like a puff of smoke. It’s really pretty neat!
