I quite liked the look of this the other week at the back of an old woods where I work.

You know you're hooked on shrooms when you come out  with  comments like "quite like the look of" and get exited by something you haven't seen before :D

chondrostereum, oysters and velvet shank?

Baffles me, different fungi on different species of trees. Not being in the know, and seeing fungi on trees that i have been walking past for years..... i automatically think the worst for their health, cos after all it wasnt there last year! But apparently some fungi is ok and non harmful to trees, so 🤷‍♂️ this is where i take tips and learn about these things 🥴 some fungi species are stunning to look at though, even if they are potentially harmful!

Some of the dreaded H Fungus at the base of a Sweet Chestnut as of yesterday.
