Not half as much as Datura and Brugmansia would! 

Back for another small flower ID!

Looks more like Candytuft to me.

Is This Honey Fungus?

Chicken of the wood is delicious - there are also reports of morels in Norfolk, but I've never been lucky enough to track any down.  When I lived in Suffolk I had a source for Wood Blewits which were lovely too - the chap who gave them to me was such an expert - I'm very much a learner who grew up in the country with people who gathered mushrooms, and I've been on a few Fungi Forays.

HELLO FORKERS!

Just picked some more raspberries and the last of the gooseberries before the blackbirds beat me to it.

Now to get that lawnmower out .......

Colour's more like it, but then fungi colour can be notoriously variable - time of year would be right .... but there's very few I'd identify as edible online - probably only Shaggy Ink cap and Giant Puffball 

White Fungus - Help Needed

It's a harmless fmould/fungus.  I'd probably just break the surface up when I thinned out those seedlings.

Outrageous sexism!!!!!

Ma was in the Land Army - I think I've posted before about how she saved a man from being trampled and gored by a bull by getting a pitchfork and sticking it up the bull's nostril while all the men were standing back wondering what to do.

She said, it doesn't matter what sex you are if you've got a brain and know how to use it.

Always a formidable woman, my Ma

Just thought I ought to mention it, as it had been suggested they were Common ink caps - don't think they are - the colour and texture looks wrong to me.

Shaggy Inkcaps are edible and very tasty and I didn't want the reference to 'ink cap' to cause confusion.
