Pixie Palace


Here is a photo of toadstools taken at Westonbirt. Everyone knows that toadstools are home to pixies, imps and fairies. Any pixie would be proud to call any of these three home. Westonbirt is home to flora and fauna alike and you don't have to look very hard at the arboretum to find mother nature at her best.

This toadstool looks pretty much like one I saw in Oswaldtwistle last year - http://sithenah.aminus3.com/image/2007-10-09.html

To be avoided in your omelette. ;)
But they are pretty. Much prettier than their Dutch plastic version with the blue-eyed gnomes. :)

I have never seen a toadstool. Period. They're so pretty. Took me back to the days when I used to read Enid Blyton. Could you post a close up of one, please?

I've just done a post on my blog about the fly agaric fungus and have linked to half a dozen other fungi posts including yours here.
