A silvery bronze toadstool - just perfect for a fairy party, don't you think?
We have heaps of fungus around lately as a result of all the rain. It has been quite a challenge to defuse Wombat's curiousity about them - he wants to touch or at least smoosh them - which can be dangerous as many are extremely poisonous.
I have been reading him Peg Maltby's little book about fairies using them as homes and umbrellas etc, and we are practicing taking their photo and leaving them alone. (That way we can look at them without being tempted to touch!)
