We're all for xeriscape (low watering) gardens and replacement of the water-guzzling Kentucky Blue Grass, which dominates our cities and parks. But it should be known that while such a move would promote growth of some mushrooms, it would hurt some—like the brown cone head. It emerges after dawm watering of city lawns.
You don't have to be dense or a dunce to get a little excited about this brown dunce cap, which wilts away by mid-day. Self-important early-morning-go-get-'em types look ridiculous scurrying past dunce caps in the wet grass. It's less common than its lookalike, the white dunce cap.
