Toadstools, mushrooms, fungi, funghi - call them what you like, Autumn, 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness', may not to some be as appealing weatherwise as spring and summer, but the way fungi just appear out of the ground is quite magic - though 'magic mushrooms' may be best left to Glastonbury Festivalgoers. The ones that appear on trees last a lot longer.
Here are some photos of my favourites, taken over the years. Andrew Graham has more to say on the subject on the MoreNews page.
The pages now display photos of fungi taken by members. This one by Andrew Carter - Trametes versicolour.
Please do not eat any of them.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
