It’s a grey dull day here in Porthmadog. I took the dogs a quick walk and had to return for a camera. The dogs wouldn’t come back without a good cursing, they don’t like being short changed. Even I couldn’t miss seeing these monsters.
A pair of Shaggy Parasols in perfect condition. The ‘grown ups’ name is Lepiota rhacodes. These are edible but must be cooked. I used to eat them but these days they give me stomach cramps. I can only assume they don’t mix well with campanology.
I could do with finding some Puff Balls they are my favourite cooked with smoked bacon.
That’s all for today. Tomorrow I’m heading for Borrowdale in the Lake District. Lets hope for some misty mornings and autumn colour.
