im sure its them dotty hard to tell the size on pic

30 Oct, 2009

 

About an inch high? That's the road-type gravel, to give you an idea - not horticultural gravel.

30 Oct, 2009

 

maybe not then, look the same but the ones im talking about are smaller unless they grow to this size, dont get chance if being picked quick lol dont eat them just incase barbara eheh

They're mostly dried up and disappearing now, Sandra - so I shan't bother to pull them out. Henry doesn't like mushrooms so he won't eat them - thank goodness! Can you imagine him staggering around seeing cats that weren't really there? lol

:-)) When I'm cooking, he sits next to me and hopes bits will drop into his mouth - carrots, sprouts, oh - lots of things, but he forgets EVERY time that he does NOT like parsnips or mushrooms! I give him a bit - and he spits it out!

30 Oct, 2009

 

haven't read your other comments yet...but they look like some that I've found in my lower garden...by the book they're called "inky caps"....but didn't make note of the proper botanical nomenclature...sorry~! No wonder they are linked in myth with sprites and fairies...they look magical don't they? their mycelia can be huge..covering vast areas underground...and we only see the sporebearing parts in what appear to be isolated clumps! verrry cool fungi!

31 Oct, 2009

 

I quite like them, Lori! They remind me of fairy tales....when I was a child....

31 Oct, 2009

 

We have some growing in the field beside our house which come up only every second or third year it seems...they are huge! large coneshaped tops with inky black gills standing about 6 inches tall! lovely things.
