Here Today – Gone Tomorrow

Unknown Mushroom

Always amazes me how fungi and mushrooms can so mysteriously appear from the earth overnight and depart just as quickly.




Even the close up shot didn’t help. Tried to identify these by referring to our old, never much used mushroom book with no luck; of course, they may not be mushrooms.  I remember the rule – all mushrooms are fungi but not all fungi are mushrooms – which really doesn’t help much. However, they are very colourful and very noticeable, so I guess they are trying to cast their spores to the wind or entice innocent bystanders into using them for a last supper!
