Natures bounty

The forest is flush with Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) after the recent rains, they're absolutely everywhere! Of course, obeying the recent notices in the forest in relation to mushroom collecting; I didn't collect any, nor did I add them to a delicious (speculation) stinging nettle and mushroom risotto.  Ludicrous really, trying impose the current collection restrictions. Yeah, stop the mythical commercial picker, who I don't doubt exist, though who in my 30 years of mushrooming have never seen, but for personal use, it's stupid and must be impossible to enforce. You could have collected a couple of carrier bags full today and not made any impact. Anyway, here's some I didn't eat earlier.
