Woodland Scene

The rain has returned, and with it comes the mushrooms. I found this mushroom under an oak tree in the yard. I was struck how it looked like a woodland scene, the home of fairies and dwarves. I expect that if I was patient, I might catch a glimpse of such unseen things.

My friend Joe who is a mushroom hunter says this mushroom is amanita phalloides and that they are very poisonous.

Each year i see the return of Amanita muscaria, the toadstool mushroom, which is also poisonous, if not hallucinogenic.
