FungiFriday - Homegrown
It great to have a garden with tall pines, shrubs and some leafy fruit tree. In the fall I know where to check for some mushrooms. And usually I was able to find some small brown ones. Probably inedible.
But this year we got these :)
I do not normally pick them in the wild and the are rumorus that it is very similar to a poisonous one, though from what I saw and read they are quite different.
Either way... I am not sure so I left them there and just enjoyed the view.
The edible ones that can usually be found (at least that's here I could normally see them) at the edges of the forest is tall grasses. Often growing by the side of the roads or paths near woods.
As I am writing this the ones you see on the photos are already gone. But new one popped. And again - they will just stay there looking lovely :)
Big, white hats standing tall among lush grass (that is asking to be trimmed a bit). They are full f the brown spots, something quite characteristic if you compare them to the Amanita some people confuse them with.
But there are few things that can ensure you it i the good one - the little ring around the leg is movable and if you cut them, the leg inside is supposed to be empty. I didn't check it myself. That's what I was told by someone that picks them. I am tempted to check, but then again... they look so nice there that I don't want to touch them :)
They must be tasty though...
I had a pair of eyes watching me :))
