Summer heat, humidity spawns giant mushrooms
Jackie Wood, 605 S. Clay, recently discovered a giant mushroom growing on a tree in her yard. Wood's mushroom weighed more than her dog Angel did. "There was one on the other side of the tree last year but it didn't get nearly this big," Wood said. This one grew behind the tree and there were flowers hiding it. I didn't find it until I started clearing out sticks from the area."
