When I wrote my last story about Fungi, I was looking at venturing into some of our rain forests to see what I could find in the damper parts of our region; unfortunately, that never eventuated. So why am I writing another story on fungi? Well, as it turned out, as autumn rolled along, with winter in ‘hot’ pursuit, there started to appear some rather unusual fungi on what you could call our doorstep (the top of our driveway) which I couldn’t ignore. Added to that, I finally decided to have a look at our local Lyrebird Forest Walk, which I’d been meaning to do for around four years. It was only a short walk that I did that day, but it presented quite a range of fungi compared to what lies closer to home.
