Toadstools are Small.

November 2, 2009

And they grow in my courtyard. Take a look:

It turns out that these are fly Amanitae, which = psychoactive and potentially poisonous. So, probably won’t be eating those. However, my Sweetie and I noticed a load of other mushrooms a-sprouting around the yard, not all of them spotty. What’s more, last weekend, I saw our neighbor and his main squeeze trolling the grass like truffle pigs and snapping up toadies left and right.

If that’s not living Small, I don’t know what is. Foraging in the backyard for foodstuffs? Totally fly! Any recommendations for ID’ing these funky fungi?

Okay, okay, so Halloween was yesterday, but I nevertheless wanted to share our DIY get-ups.

The best part: We sourced almost everything from our own closet (I’m not kidding; I do own a vermillion crinoline), and handmade the rest — riding hood, wolf mask, tail — out of craft store supplies.

Did you dress up? Did you DIY? Let’s see it.
