Mushrooming


Hurrah, May is my favourite month in Daylesford as we get to look at al the pretty mushrooms that spring up around the lake and forest. Most of these are very deadly. Except the pine or slippery jack mushroom. You can cook these up with garlic and they are delicious on toast. Mmm.




I found the mushroomy fashion spread in the mammoth and awesome Babiekins magazine. You can read it for free here.

Last time I was up there I took some photos of the red & white dotty mushrooms to show my little girls. I told them that the this is where the fairies go for their holidays "Daylesford Lake" and they were so excited!

Oh I love the fox scarf. I bought it in London. I can hardly wait to wear it in Melbourne.

You can buy the Slippery Jacks and Pine Mushrooms at the St.Kilda Veg Out Markets as well.
