Giant Toadstool Invades Weston Branch
August 18, 2011
The pristine vista that is the Weston Branch's lawn was marred today by the appearance of an extremely (unearthly???) large toadstool. To show just how big this toadstool is, we have placed a llama beside it for comparison. See above photo. (Photo disclaimer: not real llama)
If your yard has been taken over by these over-sized fungi, check out these books to help identify the "enemy".

Just in case you think the aforementioned toadstool is a mushroom, here is a website to help clarify this thinking http://www.fungibank.csiro.au/topic_2_5.htm.
