The Magic of a Mushroom

  • Autumn’s warm colours are about to appear, the bronze, gold and yellows of the leaves are about to show in autumn's nature collection. I will be looking out for one small piece of perfect fire-brigade red that will appear about now. The Fly Agaric mushroom is the iconic red with white spots mushroom that you first saw as a child depicted in books of Fairy Tales. Well what ever about the tales in the book the red and white mushroom does exist and is relatively easy to find especially at this time of year.flyagaric1
  • The toadstool or the Fly Agaric is commonly found near pine plantations, the mushroom is hallucinogenic but it is also poisonous. It was believed that mixing it with milk was used to kill flies and in some quarters you may read that this was the mushroom taken by Viking warriors to throw them in to a mad rage and they were called Berserkers.
