Fairy Rings Are Popping Up In Lawns All Across West Virginia, And Here’s Why

I’ve noticed something interesting and unusual popping up in yards everywhere recently; have you? Fairy rings! They seem to be especially abundant this year, perhaps because we’ve gotten so much moisture or maybe I’m just noticing them more right now than I ever have before. Either way, these mushroom circles are a fascinating natural phenomenon with a cool backstory and lots of associated lore.
