I can remember my Old childhood days of collecting mushrooms going through this post!

Bagni di Lucca and Beyond

I have been walking regularly along the road to our new house in Vergemoli. The road is mostly under the cover of chestnut trees.

I have barely noticed a tree stump which I must have passed dozens of times over the past few weeks, but today the path was wet after heavy rain, and I was watching my footing on the slippery leaves….and I spotted this.

On closer inspection I saw the stump was almost covered in a crop of tiny mushrooms.

I can’t decide whether they look like clusters of tiny parasols, or limpets, or nipples….what do you think?

Take a look at some enormous (and delicious) mushrooms on Bella Bagni di Lucca.
