Actually, the title is all wrong. The Resurrection ferns shrivel up and die to be "resurrected" after rain. This beautiful, striped shelf fungus that looks almost like a rose from the top until it dries, come alive in the rain. This was taken in a small pile of neatly sawn oak limbs near my neighbor's burn pile. I have watched them for months - they grow after every rain and are getting larger. The flowers have fallen from the treetops - they are the product of a Crossvine, a native vine. Hummingbirds who are now arriving, love their trumpets. They bloom high in the treetops reaching after sun. The shelf fungus is common to oaks here, and is finely striped and feel like suede. However, I've never seen them so big and ruffly.
