Mushrooms

It is late summer in Sweden, or perhaps early autumn is a better description, the trees are just beginning to change colour and it is the time when there should be plenty of mushrooms. But there aren’t many of them this year.

My friends tell me that they came out early with the summer being so cool and wet. Most of them have been picked already or eaten by the local wildlife.  There were some outside the mushroom exhibition at the Botanic Gardens in Gothenburg.  That’s the first picture in the gallery.  The rest of the pictures were taken in the forests around Uddevalla and Västra Götaland this past couple of years.  The red ones are dödlig giftig – deadly poisonous according to the exhibition!
