A mushroom for St George
Simon Harding photographed these mushrooms at Filnore Woods actually on St George's Day, 23rd April. That's why they are called St George's Mushrooms. Field Mushrooms, the ones we commonly eat, appear in late summer and autumn.
St George's Mushrooms are perfectly safe to eat as long as you get the right one. Apparently the taste is good. Don't use these photos to identify them. Learn from an expert.
This view from undeneath shows the whitish gills below the cap. Thank you, Simon, for the pics.
