Anyway, now we live by lakes and woodland, giving me a fantastic chance to get in touch with my inner leaf-kicker again, whilst also introducing my now-nearly-2-year-old everything-kicker to something she’s allowed to put the boot to.
But what we’ve seen so many of on our walks here so far have been mushrooms! They’re everywhere and in many different varieties. None of which I know the poison potential of, so mainly walks have been accompanied by a lot of hysterically yelling “no touching”, somewhat disturbing the peacefulness of nature. But at least Lily isn’t dead, even if she does shout “no touching” and “no stepping on” at every fungi she sees now.
Anyway, here’s some pictures of our finds so far! I’ve included official fungi names for reference.
|Mushroom hunters at the ready.|
|Less than 5 seconds after I took this, Lily stamped on it. Hence the “no stepping!” rule.|
|Wall-clinger-onners. Official name, promise.|
|”Ice-keems”. According to Lily.|
|Your standard umbrella model.|
|More like a parasol with the frilly edges.|
