Wow! Some fungi grow quickly!

This mushroom wasn’t in my garden two days ago. Then we got a heap of rain (49 mm) in one day and it appeared — and as large as life. Within hours it was as big as my shoe, and within another two days it was finished.

No, I didn’t pick it and eat it. I know very little about mushrooms and toadstools, so I wasn’t going to risk eating something that was possibly poisonous.

I was just amazed at its short life cycle.
