This toadstool is quite magnificent and I was amazed at its size and also how much like a ceramic ornament it looks. It is actually very, very shiny, but was unable to capture that phenomena. Does anyone know the name of this toadstool?

    All you need now are the fairies. Simple but so effective.

  • Thanks Karen. I have the fairies, it’s getting shots of them that’s proving difficult.
