Pizza Tree

 It has been a rainy month. Mushrooms of varying sizes and colors have popped up in yards. A tree on my walking route has grown a series of fungi that look like slices of pizza. I stopped to marvel at it, ignoring the barking dog whose job it is to announce the arrival of every person who walks by. Caught up in a fantasy of a tree that dispenses conveniently sliced pieces of pizza, I wondered where the slot would be for the money. But why does this look like pizza with crumbled sausage? Wouldn't mushroom pizza make more sense?
