White Saddle [ Helvella crispa ] by 

I went out hunting again today and found this one. This was a new one for me so I was really pleased to add it to my collection . It stood about 6 inches high and the stem is hollow . One book I have stated its poisonous but another says its edible ,either way I’m not eating it .

I am a 57 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.

    Anything with the starting of a words “Hel” and “methylhydrazine” associated with it is a NO -NO on the menu Mark. We wouldn’t want you seeing little people in the forests. It looks as if it has wings like an angel…Jules
