What a strange sight to see this fungus growing out of a tree knot!
looks like it's sticking it's tounge out at us:)
This is no small mushroom, folks - it's roughly the size of a boot, with rough dark ridge under the fleshy part. The 'toungus' (as I've started calling it) has been growing for so long that spider web strings are forming under it's lip.
Toungus can be seen from the road, and clearly seen from any window in the front of our house.
Is this tree trying to tell us something? Is toungus a danger to the tree? we don't know!
