Brain matter or delicious mushroom?
It was growing at the base of an oak tree, a large fungus that bore more than a passing resemblance to a brain.
How long the mushroom had been there I’m not sure, but it caught my attention last Sunday afternoon.
My knowledge of edible fungi is limited to morels, so I wasn’t particularly tempted to pick the giant mushroom until I had a better idea what it was. It didn’t look particularly appetizing.
