Mushrooms in front yard

Here are a couple of mushrooms I found this morning growing in my front yard.

I don’t think we’ll be having mushroom soup with these little beauties.

They turn out to be poisonous and hallucinogenic – see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanita_muscaria.

    1. Yes occasionally, but never the nice red and white ones.

      Pity they don’t last very long, looking quite withered after only one week. With thick gardening gloves on and using a little hand-digger, I raked them into a plastic bucket and then into the green bin for our regular collection.

      I should really have wrapped them in newspaper and burnt them, but our local council has banned that for many years now.

      Yesterday I picked out a couple of the normal beige and white ones from the grass near the kerb, but they were nowhere near as interesting to photograph.
