The quintessential toadstool…
is my way of honouring the seasons,
I was lucky enough to spot
some gorgeous Red Cap toadstools (Amanati muscari)
the other month.
They were stunning, and
I was overjoyed at my unexpected find.
Because where there’s toadstools, there’s Gnomes
Well, that’s what I was told as kid.
I was also told that rain was caused by
Angels relieving themselves, so maybe not everything
I pass on can be trusted.
However, Gnomes DO exist.
Inspired by my good fortune,
& the lovely Toadstool & Gnome goodness.
I rushed home to try and bring of it
into my home.
This is the result….
a little bit of earthly magic indoors.
It’s Magically educational,
don’t you think?
