Parasol Mushrooms– almost certainly. If it is, this would be very tasty, but Parasols are easily mistaken for highly poisonous fungi so don’t try them unless you are very experienced and sure. Experts suggest you don’t eat them unless you take a spore print first, and always check that the ring moves up and down the stem, which it does on the Parasol. This big fungi,IMG_1379IMG_1757 IMG_1756 grows in woodland clearances, grassy fields and lawns, mostly in the south, where I am again. It will sometimes grow on grassy cliffs further north. Conditions: After heavy rain last week, and before the predicted heavy rains tomorrow, there have been two gloriously sunny days down south. Temperature: Max 19- Min 13c.
