Field mushrooms

Over the past month, we’ve had so much (needed) rain.  Add an almost daily dose of sunshine and we’ve had the most fantastic field mushrooms popping up everywhere!  It’s just the right mix of weather.

As a young person, I was taught which mushrooms to pick and which ones to avoid.  We do pick the correct ones and cook them with butter, some worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper. Yum!

..and I love the detail of a mushroom.  They are amazing to look at and each one on it’s own is a fungus-y miracle!! 😀

Here are a few more shots of some mushrooms. Most are simple snapshots.

Don’t forget to visit Leanne’s blog today for the Monochrome Madness challenge.  I missed out on participating this week after a busy one.  There is a gallery of some really wonderful black and white images.

    1. Hi Julie, yes Worcestershire, salt, pepper and butter. Butter first.
      Fry in a pan 🙂
      Would love to see your red and gold mushie. We don’t have those here.
      Thanks on the pics… Some were just ‘Oh my goodness’ quick shots 😉


  1. Hi Robyn, Excellent writing and photos on the mushrooms! I loved the pink one – but the opening shot is fantastic! Good that you are getting rain. All the best, my friend, and take care. 🙂


    1. Thank you very much Fabio. You’re very kind!!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the close ups. Mushrooms are amazing creations 😀
      The rain has been much needed and awesome. Everything is green again. The dust has settled and the cattle have feed again.
      Always appreciate your comments and support Fabio. Thanks 😀


  2. Enjoy, nothing quite like fresh field mushies with butter but worcestershire sauce? Not doubting your culinary tastes but I like them plain lol 🙂 Great shots.


  3. Beautiful! Mushrooms are so incredible. My boys love this children’s book “Mushroom in the Rain” by Mirra Ginsburg. It is such a great book. Great post.


    1. Hi Carrie, yes I think they’re amazing little or big creations.
      I had a look at the book you described… What a lovely children’s book. Lovely story, illustrations and full of colour!
      Glad you enjoyed the post. Thank you.
