Mushrooms

One thing I did notice on Hallow’een was how many mushrooms we have growing out our lawn.  I told the children that they were witches’ toadstools and that they were Not To Touch.

My photos are a bit crappy – my book on mushrooms says to take photos of them, you need to lie down on your front.  However, our lawn is sodden and I couldn’t face the extra washing.

My son wanted these to be Destroying Angel mushrooms (deadly poisonous) but I think they are Shaggy Ink Caps

Brown birch bolete (think this has been trodden on / hit by the robot lawnmower)

Not sure what this is - perhaps Psathyrella multipedata?
