Last weekend, before Florence graced us with a rainy visit, we went shroom-hunting with the camera, primarily because while we are aware of a plethora of fungi in the yard, we are equally aware that most of them are most certainly inedible, if not downright poisonous.

Any input on your part would be appreciated, esteemed visitor to this humble blog.
