Shaggy inkcap (Coprinus comatus)

 or lawyers wig fungus


8.30 this morning I was on my way to the station heading for Birmingham  to the apple store in the bullring. may sound a bit strange Apples and bullrings, but all be explained. as I was just about to enter the station some white  caught my eye in the co-op car park.  and it turned out they were Shaggy inkcap mushrooms.
8.30 y bore 'ma roeddwn i ar fy ffordd i'r orsaf pennawd ar gyfer Birmingham i'r siop afal yn y bullring. Gall swnio braidd yn rhyfedd Afalau a bullrings, ond mae pob un yn cael ei egluro. gan fy mod yn unig oedd ar fin mynd i mewn i'r orsaf dal rhai gwyn fy llygaid yn y maes parcio cyd-op. ac mae'n troi allan eu bod yn madarch inkcap garw.

The cattle grid on the lane to Brimmon hill farm. The only reason I went over the grid was I saw some mushrooms and Today I had set my mind on looking and photographing mushrooms hopefully colourful toadstools!
click on the pic  you will see the white spots. one on the first hill and the other bellow the pole.
on leaving the house I shot these puff fungi that had shot up through the drive tarmacadam .
Now I have the book I may as well go look for some fungi.

this big one is edible and there was lots of them in the field not all like this some flat ones small button type there was also a few poisenous fungi.

One hedge hill .
some had already been picked at,, I wonder what kind of bug eats poison fungi.

A fairy village is a clustered fairy settlement or community, larger than a hamlet with the population ranging from tens to a few hundred and we have a few villages here in Newtown.
just across the road to the village I saw the butler who was quite amused watching me taking photos of the village,

and this must be a hamlet

this fairy village is just outside our front gate
