These Puffball mushrooms were gathered in back of our house in the ravine, but had never seen them growing in that spot before in the past. As a rule we don't see them until they have grown too big to eat and usually in hard to find places, scattered here and there in the woods. I found this perfect heart shaped puffball mushroom that I am holding on the day of my birthday and did a few self portraits three evenings later, until mosquitoes who didn't have heart, started to bite:-) I loved the "heart" of this mushroom and of course my husband and I did not eat it, but let it grow old gracefully where it retained its shape until the end of its life.
