Fortune definitely favours the brave. We headed out for a walk today despite the massive rain showers that were pounding North Wales and were hugely well rewarded.
We headed along between Penmaenmawr and Abergwyngregan, and came across a ring of mushrooms under a Scots Pine, clearly symbiotic with it. I still can’t identify the large pale gilled fungus. I think it’s lactarius something or other, and I’m pretty confident it’s not edible, so will be composting that one.
We picked a few of them, and left others. Just enough for dinner, the rest can obviously go on acting as the fruit bodies of the organism to spread and grow stronger for future.
They were not our only bounty on this short trip…
