    I’m not an advocate of eating any wild mushrooms you find (though mushrooming is a very common pastime here), I do love mushrooms, and something about these is making me hungry. I think it’s theire vague resemblance to pastries.

    Gorgeous. I love mushrooms and always look forward to long meanders through the woods in search of them.

    rq, it was amazing, those shrooms looked just like butter glazed, fresh baked bread. The temptation to eat those things was almost overwhelming. We left them alone, though. They were huge, too -- 12 inches across.

    Kestrel, some odd, giant mushrooms pop up here now and then. There are some that a few people in town have eaten, with no ill effects, but I’m not a mushroom fan, so none of that for me.

    Which reminds me, there’s a delicious bakery between the train station and home…

    MUSHROOMS! MUSHROOMS!! MUSHROOMS!!! Moar MUSHROOMS!!!! The mildly deranged penguin is now bouncing to-and-fro, off the walls, floor, building on the other side of the street, the Argo (she doesn’t always pay much attention to time), and a passing flying saucer. Whilst the aliens don’t seem to be too bothered(I suppose they are somewhat use to her by now), there is a bunch of sopping wet, not too friendly-looking guys in bronze armour with whacking great swords clomping up the street…

    (Last night I had a MUSHROOMS!, bacon, tomatoes, vin, and cheese soup, with wild rice. And there are leftovers! — hopefully enough for Mr Jason and his friends…)

    Ok, so the bakery is delicious, but what about the stuff they bake?

    Caine, I am sorry you are not a mushroom fan! :-) But not *too* sorry, because… MOAR FOR ME. :-D

    Wild mushrooms have far more taste and appeal (just like home grown tomatoes have far more taste and appeal) than what one can get at the supermarket. (Usually. Sometimes you can get wild mushrooms there!)

    However. This is not a hobby for every one. If you are a person who likes to pay attention to the smallest detail, maybe you will be interested. If not, no problem! There are tons of fun hobbies out there. Hiking! Photography! Wind surfing! Knitting! To name just a few. There are so many cool things to do in life! I happen to love mycology and everything about it, including the names. Doesn’t Hypomyces lactiflorum just roll off the tongue?
