Wednesday afternoon I was having a bath and the front door opened downstairs. Debbie's voice boomed out from below telling me to get dressed and fetch my camera. She'd found some odd mushrooms growing nearby (not the ones pictured here). Anyhow by the time further investigations ensued aforementioned fungi had completely disappeared. She's been taking pictures of fungi recently. I think they tie in with the whole foraging culture she's interested in. These are some from the nearby woods. The fungi at the bottom of this post are a shelf fungi or bracket fungi from the polypore group. A variety of which was recently photographed on one of the blogs I subscribe to here.
