Amanita muscaria dans notre jardin.
Amanita muscaria, (or fly agaric) is a psychoactive toadstool, - a large imposing white-gilled, white-spotted red mushroom, one of the most recognizable and widely encountered. It is famed for its hallucinogenic properties with its main psychoactive constituent causing delirium when consumed.
This one, in our garden causes delirium in the photographer, but not elsewhere. Soon there will be many others along with hundreds of edible mushrooms too.
