FUN WITH FUNGI

I've decided to take some time off from mothing for the foreseeable and concentrate mainly on one of my other passions - yep you guessed it, fungi.


Reasons to enjoy fungi are many: Their mysterious life cycles, trying to master the complex art of identification, their photogenic properties, the discovery of a rare or exciting specimen, not to mention the health benefits from enjoying the great outdoors.


My fungi blog can be found here:
