Return to Fly Agaric


I retruned to the exact same Amanita Muscaria that I blogged and blipped about a few days ago here. Since then I have been reading up on their development and it seems they travel from their beginning to their end in a very short period of time. That was enough to take me back into the forest today. This time I stepped into a ditch in the process getting my walking boots wet through and even my socks. But it was worth it!
I found several more clumps of mushrooms by venturing further into the forest and it seems the mushrooms prefer the spots where the sun can managed to get through the thick foliage and shed its light down on the forest floor. As you can see it was another sunny day, but oh boy, it's certainly getting colder here in the Scottish Borders!

Wow (again) Frieda - how close did you have to get to those lovelies? The colours really pop - sorry about the ditch incident LOL - what we do for art, eh! J

These are amazing. Thank you for going to so much trouble to share them with the rest of us. Beautiful.

It's feeling like winter here yesterday and today with the wind and snow flurries. Your photo of orange mushrooms and sunshine is a welcome warm spot in the day.

Aren't they amazing! When I first met my husband he used to take me on walks through the woods and he spent many hours photographing fungi. I love these so much that we had the cake decorator make 3 out of sugar paste for the top of our wedding cake!

Like a real-life fairytale (oxymoronically!)
