Today Tedd and I went out into the great huge area called “The Lawn”. We are in England and found that the lawns here are just like the ones at home, if they don’t get cut they become like a jungle! It had long green blades of grass and clover leaves and other plants so huge to us, they loomed over our heads.
Tedd came upon this really exciting find, two Shaggy Ink Cap Mushrooms standing tall in the jungle of grass. We studied them carefully but didn’t touch, as you never know if they may be poisonous. We did some sketches then looked them up in a field guide when we got home.
We told our artist friend Mary McAndrew about them and she decided to do a little watercolor sketch of them, check it out on her blog here.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the huge mushroom discovery with us!
