Mushrooms, red agaric (Amanita muscaria)20191021_165633_HDRCMushrooms 20191021_165728_HDRCMushrooms 20191021_165940_HDRCMushrooms 20191021_170058_HDRCOn my walk yesterday I saw these four different mushrooms. All in the same place. I like the scent of the moist soil, mushrooms and leaves. Here it was strong. I only know the inedible red agaric (Amanita muscaria) by the name. The others are unknown to me.

You can see, feel and smell the arriving of the autumn in the woods. The smells of mushrooms, leaves that have fallen to the ground, moist soil. I think the above mushrooms are glistening ink cap mushrooms. They looked so pretty in the evening sun.

Hösten närmar sig. Det doftar svamp, löv som fallit till marken, fuktig jord. Kan svamparna jag fotade vara glitterbläcksvamp ? Tyckte dom var vackra i kvällssolen.

Winter Mushrooms

The other day when I was out walking Canelo we went the same route we always walk. The road along the lake. I saw something yellow on the other side of the ditch. Small yellow mushrooms. They grow on a rotting tree trunk. I really don’t know mushrooms well at all. Back at home I looked for the mushrooms from an old book we have. The book is from 1952 with nice drawings in colour. According to the book and after browsing the internet I think it is winter mushroom [Flammulina velutipes, Collybia velutipes]. I may, of course, be wrong. Anyway. The mushrooms look very nice. They lit up the already gray nature. I think I have, long ago, seen some, maybe even photographed, but then didn’t think more of it. I read an article in a Swedish news paper saying the winter mushroom is unknown to many and that it’s edible. But, since I’m still unsure I better not pick and eat of them.
