Posties Park puffball…

Posties Park puffball...

A bit of poetic licence with the title here, for alliterative purposes. This ‘fun guy’ (ba dum tish!) isn’t really a puffball mushroom – it’s a highly poisonous toadstool (Amanita muscaria, according to Wikipedia…), so don’t go firing it in a skillet with some garlic butter, folks.

This bit of Posties, under the trees beside my house, is fungus-mongous at the moment – the recent rain seems to have created a harvest. Dog-walkers might want to be mindful of this – internet advice is that dogs can get pretty sick if they eat these toadstools.

But isn’t it pretty?!
