Yesterday saw the season’s first mushroom expedition. A bit early for real diversity, with only four edible species collected, but on the other hand we found quite a lot of chanterelles.
- Chanterelle, Kantarell, Cantharellus cibarius
- Birch bolete, Björksopp, Leccinum scabrum
- Orange Birch Bolete, Tegelsopp, Leccinum versepelle
- Red russula, Tegelkremla, Russula decolorans
As a Swedish journalist once wrote, paraphrasing the Scarlet Pimpernel:
They find him here
They find him there
They say they find him everywhere
Is he in Heaven or is he in Hell?
That damned elusive Chanterelle
