We continued our fungi foraging yesterday.
After posting a link to my blog on my Facebook page, a couple of school friends suggested places I may be able to discover fairy mushrooms.
“So are we going to Victoria Woods?” said Man.
“No, sweetheart, we are going to Virginia Waters,” I grinned, “But you were close.”
Virginia Waters is a man made garden, lake and forest on Crown Land, part of Windsor Great Park. It’s lovely.
Some of it is manicured, some of it is woodland. There’s a totem pole from British Columbia, follies, waterfalls … but we were looking for fungi.
We might not have found story book red ones with white spots but we found lots of others. And I’m not giving up yet. A fellow blogger suggested it might be the wrong time of year so I think I might Google it and see what we come up with.
Anyway, here’s a selection. When I get up to Nottingham I shall buy myself an identification book and see what I can find out about fungi. Cos (probably sadly) I have decided I quite like them. I certainly like photographing them.
