    This is a great woodland shot. Mushrooms kinda give me the creeps. I had a massive one pop up outside our house here. It looked like a satalite dish.

  • Thank you Paula

    Are these edible? Could do my homework & find out, I suppose. And where are the fairies? I like the colors & the forms – all seemingly vying with each other for some fungussy supremacy.

  • I think they are edible but have a bitter taste. Thanks
