More Mushrooms

We have not been out ‘mushrooming’ for a few days, but my friend Meg has posted more from her walk today. However we were not slacking, but have identified a few more by matching photos and information from books and online.

This fairy toadstool now has a name, but even unnamed it is very pretty and delicate, although quite tall. Stuart found a leech attached to his foot when we arrived home on Monday, no doubt picked up when tramping through the scrub to ferret out finds like this! The bite is rather painful, inflamed and angry, but gradually recovering.

I hope you have plans for Easter, perhaps involving chocolate and family … or music and church or similar … we have lots of gardening to do, in preparation for our next trip to Europe, coming up in less than four weeks. However we are seeing friends on Saturday evening, and that will no doubt involve chocolate.

You can see the Yoga Barn and almost the house in this photo … our marsupial lawn hosted many different fungi. I am hoping to identify this one tomorrow when I visit a dear neighbour who has lent me some fungi books that must be returned before we go travelling.

Look at this gracious feminine shape! I am sure I have seen some just like this in Walt Disney movie … do you remember, dressed as Japanese dancers?

This one is growing in the old forest, protruding proudly from a hole in aย fallen branch.

I wish you a happy and meaningful holiday period enjoying what ever comes your way. May you be as colourful, strong, resourceful and successful in all you do as these marvellous fungi are! Can you see the stowaway below?

  1. What wonderful example Christine. I love the ‘Amanita ananiceps’…they are sensational. I took a few shots of a pretty one at my neighbours the other day. I have no idea what type it is but it sure is pretty.

  2. It’s a mosquito — and from your narrative, probably a lot less pesky than your husband’s ankle-biter.

    The log is celebrating ANZAC Day, floating at the surface with its periscope up.

  3. Beautiful collection! Studying mushrooms is a real science, there are so many different types…here in US alone there are more than 5000 species. And one can cook delicious sauces…provided one can identify them ๐Ÿ™‚

let's chat about this ...
