Happened across this little fairy fungus on the edge of a wood-chip path at the Fritz Garden this morning. Later in the day it will already have ‘deliquesced’ and turned black and slimy – hence ink cap – but it was lovely around 8am.

(Apologies for having to admit it was taken with an iPhone, and not even the latest model, but sometimes you get lucky)
