Ever since I was little, I loved mushrooms, toadstools and fungi. I remember trying to grow them, once I learned about spores (very unsuccessful). I remember making spore prints from mushrooms, fixing them to the paper with hairspray. I haven't eaten many, but our recent trip to Italy reignited a passion for fungi, mainly due to fresh porcini.
Anyway, here are some pics from my recent fungi encounters whilst out and about in the local area:
OK, this is just moss - but ain't it pretty!
