Lovely tones, Grouser - have to be careful here but when I saw the title it did make me think of one of your prior postings...

@dobbino: Wouldn't be a boat shot would it?
Is this one of the ones that makes everything a little fuzzy? The ones that the cops aren't too fond of?

@Lorna: Afraid not Lorna. It is edible and has a mild creamy taste without any side effects in my experience, although I've only had it once in a stew. This is quite a big mushroom, flat topped and about 120mm wide. The magic ones are about 10mm wide and pointy like a Pixies hat with a distinct nipple on the top. These ones do come up in that kind of shape to start with, but then the sides spread and catch up with the top.
fierce! i am game -- but will i shrink or grow? ;) great shot!

I've spent many a long hour seaching for 'Magic' mushrooms without success :(
Did you pick this to take home....?

@Observing: Magic mushrooms grow on old grazing land. The Welsh borders was a particularly good place to find them The trick was to eat the first one you found. As you ate more they started to glow and became easier and easier to find. You may notice I am writing in the past tense here. This is because I think they are now illegal in the UK. Although how something that grows here quite naturally can be against the law is a bit of a conundrum.
I left the Parasol. I thought it too perfect to pick.
