Not a cemetery for soldiers, just a row of mushrooms.

On the banks of the Jimjim river one morning, I felt a gentle breeze from the mountains flowing gently, accompanied by the rhythmic sound of the river gurgling and the singing of the local wild birds.

I remember it happening in early May, while I was in the Pidie Jaya district visiting my folks. In the meantime, I walked the short distance to Jimjim village in the meantime, taking in the refreshing mountain air. Yeah, a village called Jimjim is encircled by the Bukit Barisan mountains.

I noticed these tall, slender mushrooms growing on the ground in a slightly shady spot on the bank of the Jimjim River. Yeah, beyond a shadow of a doubt, it is a species of the fungus Panaeolus cyanescens , which is a member of the family Bolbitiaceae.

I thought I saw a cemetery of fallen soldiers with wooden markers and steel helmets nailed to the ground. I swear! I'm not sure why, but at that very second, my soul began to rumble. It did resemble a funeral for real soldiers killed in battle.

Anyway, this is all in my imagination. But I do hope that you guys will enjoy it. Of course, only at the #FungiFriday challenge hosted by @ewkaw.

Have a wonderful #FungiFriday! 😉

These are lovely. Based on their tall stature I'm surprised they can support their own weight.

Great find.

Thanks @buffalobison :)

Nice army :)

Army in silence 😀. Thanks @ewkaw

From your imagination they passed to mine. I don't think I can see them any other way. Great find!
