Ok sorry been a bit slack moving back down south has knocked me about a bit my body does not like the cold…..
Anyway I though I would post the last few things I did up north that I didn’t get around to posting.
Here are some pictures of some massive parasol mushrooms (Macrolepiota sp.) I found just before I left, I managed to pick a young one the older ones were massive as big a dinner plates and as you can see from the pictures it wasn’t a pleasant experience the sensitive weed (Mimosa pudica) up north has gotten really bad now and it is become harder to have bare feet in some spots unfortunately I ended up having to carry a pair of old croks in the car with me encase but I had snuk under the fence and was already in the paddock I just wanted to grab n run well hobble fastish for me but check out the look on my face when I landed in a patch of sensitive weed hehehe.
Well I got the mushie home along with some other ones I was interested in and researched them with the parasol I came to the conclusion it was a slender parasol mushroom (Macrolepiota mastoidea) it wasn’t very nice tasting and I was so disappointed because it smelled just like the yummy ones Macrolepiota procera that I pick in Trouwunna/Tasmania but much bigger n I though all my dreams had come true a. 😦
We also got a lot of puff balls (Calvatia cyathiformis) that I have talked about previously.
I don’t normally like to post pictures of myself but my yaba Mick was with me and took these n they are pretty funny so what tha hell here goes enjoy and hopefully I will be back into it in no time 🙂 Ps- they are all phone photos hence the quality.
And finally some mayi yaba Mick bought home for me the day before I left the bush passion fruit (passiflora foetida) was so good and the other little ones there I cant remember the name he said but I will ask yaba Mick n add it later they were nice too.
So I bid a sad farewell to my new Kuku Yalanji family n friends and I acknowledge and show respect to the Kuku Yalanji ancestors, elders n all the people for sharing their country with me which has sustained my life for the last 6 months, thank you my heart is filled with joy and I feel blessed. x
