more mushrooms taking shape around here, even as the rain stays away and the earth dries up in the forest. sometimes you gotta make your own, you know? another amanita muscaria, plus her two distinctly more deadly sisters, a. ocreata and a. phalloides (not that she's a slouch herself). also known as fly agaric, destroying angel, and death cap. stitched up in a variety of fabrics, mostly cottons, but also linen and silk, some natural dyed.
have you ever found any of these in the wild? i've definitely seen the fly agaric many times, but i'm less sure about the other two. but i've only been trying to identify fungi seriously for a couple seasons now; there's lots more learning to be done.
okay, off to the woods for an evening walk before dinner. hope your weekend has been good.
