April 28th Mushroom Encounters

Walking with Minnie today, we encountered some strange mushrooms on a lawn, which were not your usual common mushroom you find in grass.

Firstly this one, which would actually be great if you could polyurethane it and use as a bowl - if you were arty that is. I have seen similar growing at the base of tree trunks, but this was the largest of about 5 and they were all on the grass, with not a tree (only the wooden fence) in sight.

This next lot were prolific. When I first sighted them I thought some owner had let his dog do it's number twos everywhere, but on closer inspection I realised they were a dark mushroom - not one I have encountered on a suburban lawn before


  1. There certainly are some strange looking mushies there Irene. We've had a couple of meals from the farm, but we're not getting rain to bring them on, boo-hoo!

  2. Mushrooms can be so dodgy that I only stick to store bought. I can remember as a child going mushroom picking as a family though

  3. I completely enjoyed reading the stuff. Being a writer of got a stuff related to the similar topic. It’s after all quite interesting. I adore what you have got right here. You make it entertaining and you still manage to keep it smart.This is truly a great blog thanks for sharing.
