Aren't these the most delicious looking emoji mushrooms!.... thought Verity Hope.
I have to agree with her, they do look rather scrumptious but we know better not to touch or eat them don't we Verity Hope! What a delight to see them at the foot of a beautiful birch tree at the beginning of autumn.
Although a favourite with fairies and pixies, the mushroom's real name is Amanita Muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita.
So there you have it. I'm not going to real off a load of facts about them in my blog but for those who are interested in knowing more about these wonderful beauties, here is the Wiki link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanita_muscaria
Back to Verity Hope.... as soon as she saw this voluptuous display she absolutely had to run back home as fast as her tiny wire legs could carry her and tell her friends about them.
Hattie and Winnie were so excited when hearing Verity Hope's thrills and exclamations, jumping up and down with bubbles of excitement, all three of them simply HAD to go back and take a look.
Obviously some sort of pixie jamboree party had taken place the night before...
(remembering the one last winter she saw)
since half of the delicious mushrooms had been munched....
Or maybe it was that greedy Gnome Verity Hope had seen skipping around the woods the other day.
Verity Hope had seen a couple of Gnomes bickering the other day over something... could it have been about who had first bite of the mushrooms?
Anyway... whoever it was must now have a very full tummy... if a little sore?!
I hope nobody had been living in them like this young man...
They'd now have a very leaking roof : (
Ahh!!... but wait a minute.... has Verity Hope spotted something?
Some sort of sticky residue hanging off the side of one of them? Looks rather revolting close up don't you think?
Ahhh!!... THE CULPRIT HAS BEEN SPOTTED!
Now THAT'S a fat slug if ever I saw one!
Look at it's breathing holes...
And to finish this adventurous afternoon in the woods, Winnie and Hattie play a game of hide and seek...
Shss... she's behind you...!
