    That mushroom photo is so dear! I just order a few copies of Machel’s book from her Etsy site. Thanks for featuring her photos.

    Amanita muscaria. Very poisoness, espeically to young children. Beware. May cause liver damage and require subsequent liver transplant! Ironically, this is the species of mushroom that is commonly used to illustrate children’s books. Go figure.

Sorry, comment time is over.
