What a difference a day makes! This is the Shaggy Ink Cap one day on and it has grown a long stalk and spread out its top. You can see the hole has now almost disappeared as it has stretched and grown. I used the mirror technique again to get this image.
These small toadstools are growing at the bottom of a pile of hardcore in what used to be the drive. I think they might be growing from an old tree root, of which there are a plentiful supply in the front garden. Once again I deployed the mirror technique - goodness only knows what the neighbours thinkg.
I actually took some photographs without the aid of 'smoke and mirrors' and this is one of them. It shows the lovely textured top of the Shaggy Ink Cap - a mixture of what looks like tar and silk.
