I have seen something super weird outside in the bark and one of my garden beds in the last few days. Some weird fungus perhaps? At first when I saw it, it looked just like a bright sunflower yellow dusting like some pollen.
But that night around 1 am when I was outside checking on the goats, I noticed it again. It had changed. Greatly!! It had swelled up over 4 times its original size, puffed up big like yeasty dough rising and swelled. Creepy. The next morning I was curious and looking at it as again I was stunned by the changes.
It was still a bit puffy but not as big as during the night. It dried out, turned a pale beige color and looked all crusty. I had two spots in the driveway.
Two days later, I noticed another small dusting on one of the pine logs in the wood pile. I checked it out last night again in the dark around midnight and it was swelling to huge sizes again and still that brilliant yellow. And now….you guessed it. EWWWW!! Creepy.
