No specimen available

Beautiful button fruiting in our backyard grass. A month ago I took many imperfect fruit bodies from observation posted on 5/20/13 at Wynwood retirement home http://mushroomobserver.org/134100?q=1JYET
and transplanted them to our backyard. Broke them into tiny pieces and scattered all over the grass.

In only a month, this little perfect button popped up where we have been well watering our lawn. We all sampled it and it tasted just as delicious as the ones from the prior month collection!

Bright pink gills under cottony(still attached veil), NOT staining yellow when handled, pleasant light almondy scent.

Cap- 4inches around
Thick dense stem.
