I’m a fan of … mushrooms

I’m not a mycologist (or however mushroom specialists are called) so I take photos of them but otherwise I leave them be.  I’m pretty sure I can recognise a parasol mushroom but “pretty sure” is too uncertain for me.  No mushrooms for dinner tonight!

  1. Fantastic post, 😁 I’ve never seen such a variety of ‘shrooms in one go; some of them look really edible, but like you, I don’t know enough about them, so I will continue to get them from the greengrocers.
