Shaggy inkcap - Coprinus comatus

Or lawyer's wig or shaggy mane. At Walthamstow Wetlands.

A much more restful night - no need to get up at 6 for either of us now that Dave has Wednesdays off too. Was lying in bed checking emails and feeds and intercepted an email from the Finnish Church. My mum and I had a slot to visit their food shop later - but apparently Southwark Council have told them they can't run the shop. Turns out my mum was a bit tired and not up for it anyway so not a bad thing.

Did a bit of a cycle early on before the predicted rain. Turned out to be very blustery all the same - a tough ride. Popped to the post office to post my sisters' advent calendars then did a big loop via the top end of the wetlands down to Coppermill Lane. Finished off at the high street and did a Lidl shop.

Brought back some mini pizzas for lunch and we tried out the brave new swirled cocktail from Tequila Mockingbird to go with Brave New World. Cooked up a big veggie sausage and chickpea casserole for later.

I’ve been posting Advent calendars too....I spent three times the worth of said calendars to post to grandsons in if they don’t have advent calendars of their own but not Thornton’s according to their mouths!
I like the lawyers wig description!

Nice capture. Like the lawyers wig name, can see why , not one I have heard of though.

Not heard it called a lawyer's wig before, though I can see why!

A nice portrait of the mushrooms - apparently they're edible when young and white but they do not keep. The tequila sounds a much better bet!

Now that’s a mouthful to pronounce 😁

Just as well you didn't put the inkcaps in your casserole, they might have given you stomach upset!
