FUNGI APLENTY! NEW ONES APPEARING.

Let's look at some of the fungi that I've found in the last few weeks - I'm sure you'll agree that they look very Autumn-y. It doesn't matter what species they are - just enjoy them for what they are.
I have updated and republished this page.

And a view of the gills of the same plant.
This one is OYSTER MUSHROOM, but unfortunately Yucca's contain a toxin that can be absorbed by the fungus, turning a normally edible species into one to be avoided!
I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THE BEST MAXIM IS............. 'ALL FUNGI ARE EDIBLE - SOME OF THEM ONLY ONCE!!!!!'
