No, not the opening of a Lewis Carol piece, but what is going on here in the autumn season.

2-IMG_0511Every year, some years more profuse than others, and this is a good year, huge Parasol mushrooms grow up near the wedding ground. Here is one with a rather bored dog told to sit beside it to show scale. You can eat them, but in truth they are pretty tough and lacking in taste.
