Yes, Very warm and very humid,.. but our "Canada" cold will no doubt be upon me soon.

looks like Dryad's Saddle mushroom. Tough, but edible.

It looks more like a bracket fungus rather than a Dryad’s Saddle. Maybe a Turkey Tail?

thanks for your reference to the identity as possibly "Turkey Tail". From Wikipedia looks to me as it might indeed be. There are a lot of colour variants.

There is a lot of variation. For your reference, here is a picture of some young Dryad’s Saddle. They were very common this summer in Ontario.
