Mushrooms and Chainsaws

An early morning walk in Buchan Park near Crawley. If you look closely there is the face of a Green man looking out from the bottom of this stump.

Early October is clearly mushroom time at Buchan Park with signs up warning you not to pick. I have identified the obvious poisonous mushroom but I’m open to suggestions as to what the others are.

This next one is easily recognisable and (according to this is Amanita Muscaria

Common Name: Fly Agaric
Edibility: Poisonous and hallucinogenic, contains muscarine and ibotenic acid
Season: Late Summer - Autumn

This is possably Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus)- if I'm correct you can eat it!

This is a new chainsaw sculpture (by which stood out in the early morning sunlight.

Just to prove I wasn’t alone…
