"CHICKWEED" that is! (And only one mushroom. haha) It can be applied as a poultice to skin issues - boils, burns and sores in the mouth and throat. Safe enough for a baby's butt! Native Ojibwe used this for eyewash also.

Chickweed  (Stellaria media) is a medicinal herb that has been used for acne, allergies, boils, congestion and colds.

I'm not sure, but the mushroom looks like a Marasmius.  Here (in St. John's, Nfld.), it is one of the first urban mushrooms to be seen each year.

Fabulous info. Yes, I think this photo was taken earlier in the season. I keep a file of mushrooms, but I haven't researched the varieties yet. I have somewhere to start! smile Thanks.
