Agaricus urinascens

Monday Mushroom #26

This is a close relative of the field and horse mushroom. It grows much larger than either - caps often reach 25cm diameter. It is stout of build and firm of flesh. Emerging in impressive clusters on pastureland.

Misty Mountains of Sóller, Mallorca

Sóller is a beautiful town nestled in a broad valley on on the northern edge of the Mallorcan highlands. The surrounding mountains are these amazing limestone crags, with trees sprouting up wherever they can find a toehold.

Horse Mushroom

 Monday Mushroom #25

Rather like field mushrooms, but taller, less scaly and with a distinct aroma of aniseed.

Scenic Sundays #27

 The South Downs: not very wild, but wild enough - and accessible.
