Jesmond Dene Fungi

This morning at a friend’s house who was enthusing about a TV program on Painted Ladies, we saw one feeding on the hanging baskets on her front wall. It made her day.

An afternoon trip to Jesmond Dene after the recent rain had encouraged a few fungi to fruit.

Identifying fungi without specialist equipment is difficult.

This fungi is brown and funnel shaped underneath,  lighter brown gills decurrent. Quite slimy in the rain with no apparent smell.
