Fairy umbrellas

As the rainy season arrives, we enjoy the ephemeral appearance of mushrooms on the green grass, (in this case; Axonopus compressus)
it brings back childhood memories, gardening with parents, telling us that they are umbrella for small animals (and garden fairies).

Great banner Tofi!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks for sharing this banner with us. As children we had similar stories from parents & others. Brings back memories. Thumbs up
