For many, Christmas trees and bright lights are the signs of the holiday season. But in a shady section of Silver Lake,  Christmas is heralded by the the sprouting of all forms of mushrooms.  This year’s Christmas Fungus Frenzy, as chronicled by Silver Lake blogger Diane Edwardson, includes a golden mushroom (pictured at top) that was found near Corralitas Drive. What kind of mushroom is it?   Edwardson and her fellow funghi followers are stumped. Said Edwardson:

And these folks have seen a lot  of mushrooms, which Edwardson has photographed this holiday season. (And don’t miss images of the Holiday Hawk).
