A Large Fairy Ring

Post by HunterGKS » July 16th, 2021, 3:25 pm

I have seen a lot of small fairy rings & had a few in my hard but never anything this large.
For those of you who might not be familiar with fairy rings, here is a little info:

“A fairy ring, also known as fairy circle, elf circle, elf ring or pixie ring, is a naturally
occurring ring or arc of mushrooms. They are found mainly in forested areas, but also
appear in grasslands or rangelands. Fairy rings are detectable by sporocarps (fungal spore
pods) in rings or arcs, as well as by a necrotic zone (dead grass), or a ring of dark green
grass. Fungus mycelium is present in the ring or arc underneath. The rings may grow to
over 10 metres (33 ft) in diameter, and they become stable over time as the fungus grows
and seeks food underground.

Fairy rings are the subject of much folklore and myth worldwide—particularly in Western Europe.
They are often seen as hazardous or dangerous places, and linked with witches or the Devil in folklore.
Conversely, they can sometimes be linked with good fortune. “

Now you probably know more about fairy rings then you ever wanted!! LOL

Drove past the ring today. 07/20. & it looks like the ‘shrooms are on the down side.
I’ll be going by Friday & will get additional pics. At least it hasn’t been mowed over yet.
