There are no fairies round here

... but if ever there are, I can provide them with plenty of suitably diminutive seating

so what are they ?

fabulous fungi ?

t'riffic toadies ?

marvelous mushies ?

magic mushrooms ?

or maybe

freaky fungus ?
I'm assuming they're not edible
I mean, would YOU care to be the guinea pig? Nu-uh!
so we'll go with a provisional appelation of toadstool for the time being

and if, for some reason, you have a deep and abiding interest in fungi, the photo set is here

My husband and I used to belong to the local mycological group, and learned a lot of the local edibles, but I wouldn't presume to know them from one continent to the next!

The group's informal motto was "When in doubt, throw it out." (Or just don't pick it in the first place.)

When I was a kid, I was scared of mushrooms. I have no idea why. Now I find them fascinating and love to look at them! idea why. Wonderful pix!

My guess would be Poisonous Pretties...

(That's always safest, when it comes to mushrooms.)

Gorgeous photos, and you cant see the fairies, as they hide when they hear our footsteps coming!

As much as I love mushrooms, I'd never eat one if I'm not sure what it is.

We went mushroom hunting in the woods a lot when I was growing up in Germany and my dad had a book that showed the edible vs. the non edible and their minute differences...I miss those shrooms ;-)
