Saturday 20 September 2008: Meal Time?
A beautiful sight
Amongst the dead wood
On the forest floor
Red with icing
Like the best sweet food
Of which you want more
But probably best to leave this alone given it's poisonous...
Fly Agaric is a fungus which gets its name from use years ago to entice flies, get them high, and make them easier to swat. You learn something knew every day, and we learned a lot of things today on one of Valvona and Crolla's 'Fungi Forays' at a 'secret' location with Professor Watling.
A couple of hours spent trampling through the forest, with our discoveries poured over afterwards (with us finding a few edible items, but not that tasty...)
So instead we bought some nice cheese and meat from V&C on our return, as well as the obligatory bottle of wine, to go with the loaf of sourdough we'd already bought.
A good day all in all.
