|I am willing to be corrected, but I suapect there is no such thing as a toadstool. Not in the real world. Not in botany. Perhaps in witchcraft or sorcery, there are toadstools. But in the real world, the one in which I live, we have fungi. |
Some fungi are mushrooms. Some mushrooms are edible. Some muushrooms are poisonous. I have no idea how to tellthe difference. But, there is no way I would partake of the mushroom in my photo. I found it growing in my back lawn. It breaks down into a black, gooey, ooze.

|I tracked this little tug coming in to help. It choofed from under the harbour bridge, into Sydney Cove, and right-angled the store-boat alongside the "Rhapsody of the Seas". I might have made up that florid name, but it was something like that. It was a busy stretch of water that morning.|

|I am not sure what the expression "The answer lies in the soil" means, exactly. I kinda think it means that to solve anything, one needs to go back to basics. I am a gardener, and I adore getting down, and getting dirty. But, the expression has a wider and more general application. Gardening is becoming more onerous, as my balance and vision become more neurologically impacted. What more sedentary activity to replace it with. I adore reading - bought myself Colm Toibin's "Norah Webster" on Saturday - but reading can only be done for about 30 minutes at a time.|
So, I went into Lincraft on York Street and bought some wool and needles. Will graduate to crochet early in the new year. Lincraft is a chaotic store that stocks sooo much. And the prices are reasonable, although the quality is not crash-hot.
