On Saturday while walking through the woodlands above the River Barrow, Woodstock, Inistioge in county Kilkenny. At the back of a farm yard I came across these Mushrooms growing in the ground of the woodland.

At this time of year just as the Autumn is taking a hold the local woodlands come to life with all kinds of Mushrooms, I managed to get the below pictures and intend to go hunting for more during the week and next weekend.

The Image above is of Shaggy ink cap (Coprinus comatus) Mushrooms and below are Sulphur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare) mushrooms .

  1. What a fantastic gallery Nigel.

    Toadstools, clusters of mushrooms that look like imaginary frosted grapes :), a place to rest before continuing on deeper to the woodlands.

    What else is necessary for an autumn walk. Nothing!

    Love these very much πŸ™‚

    I wanted to ask you if you mind if I post photos of a day with my Angel dog? My Angel used to run with me every night. But she is getting older and can’t run anymore. So today because of your love for Molly I took Angel to the park and un-leashed her…..She ran and had so much fun! Thanks to you I would have never thought of this alternative to my running life style. My photos pale in comparison to yours of Molly! But I wanted to ask you if you mind if I post them of my Angel? My day with her?

      • My photos are not as nice as yours but here she is in all her bear like glory! My daughter always says, “Mom don’t let Angel out it’s hunting season and someone might mistake her for a small bear.” Hey! She is fluffy for sure.
