Rain – and little yellow mushrooms……….

shrooms 011
We’ve been having lots and lots of rain lately. I moved my pots out to catch it. I think theres no substitute for rainwater. I have also been indulging in my somewhat obsessive habit of collecting rainwater. As I cant have a rainwater tank, I now have lots of containers of rainwater, which are fast filling up with lots of mosquito larvae. I might have to move my new fishes around a bit!

Wow, that first pic of the mushrooms under the foliage looks like a painting. Really lovely. And isn't rain just the nicest subject for photography?

Those are very striking little mushrooms! Can I ask what they are called as I'm quite curious :)
