Please don't go out and drink ten pints with your meal of shaggy ink-caps, though! :shock:

On my ride today, and keeping a keen eye-out for a Phat Piffle, although quite obviously the ditch is far too narrow for one of those...

Then i saw something far more interesting. Each one the size of a dinner plate, add ketchup to taste?

A do like a big fungus. When large their scale amplifies their weird aspect. Perhaps this is also the attraction of the close-up photos of the things?

Fungi season is coming to an end here, with less showing anew and many of the extant reduced to slime by the first frosts. Here is my probably last batch of photos from this year's crop.

Quite pretty too.

I did wonder if my large and muscular puffball was one of these, as it has a similar aspect - 'though not as white:

Also, the front garden is not a fen, although it is extremely mossy.

That is very nice. Nice and big. A lovely nice big blewitt, that.

But it should be on a pristine white plate not that one with the blue scribbly stuff confusing the svelte lines of the lovely nice blewit. I have reported you to the Blewit Photography Society so they may send you a proper reprimand.

Cugel, just jealous of your big blewit really.

It's funny but sometimes one just gets a sort of feeling. :shock:
I had a feeling somebody might find the plate more "interesting" than the fruit.
Anyway those plates were my Mum's and if they were good enough for her.....

PDQ m, singularly unaesthetic and happy about it.
The proof is in the pudding.
