Very nice, you certainly have

Very nice, you certainly have loads of stuff coming up there. I have been out all day in forest type habitats in 3 different parts of south east england over past 3 days and almost nothing, infact did not take a single photo of fungi.

Odd

Seem's odd that some area's are doing okay and others nothing.I was out yesterday and noticed a few different Lactarius,Russula plus some Amanita.I think the forecast is to get cooler/wetter next week so hopefully there will be some emerging elsewhere.I am only finding them in the deep gully's in the woods were it is wet and streams run through.

Baked clay!

Would you believe the ground in my garden and the local wood is hard and cracked even after the weeks of rain we had a month ago? I've seen one bolete and a cluster of spindleshank but nothing else. I'm loving the variety and beauty of what you are seeing, thank you!

benifits

You see there are benefits of living on boggy ground when you walk around were I am finding them you sink in the mud,so maybe I won't complain any more about the conditions under foot and its clay here plus flooded area's near the streams.Well I better get back out there so I can keep providing you with some finds.
