Fun guys (ouch)

Another consequence of the warm spell is that mushrooms literally, well....., mushroom after an intermittent shower. J is crazy about them and we have quite a gallery of different kinds just from within our immediate neighbourhood. Nevertheless it was still a surprise to find these guys growing indoors in our potted pitcher plant the other day. We've had the plant for over 10 years and this is the first time this has ever happened.
The pitcher plant (Nepenthes alata). Its quite happy in an east facing window.

And right in the pot! We've never actually seen this growing outdoors in the wild. They have a very vivid powdery yellow dusting on the cap.

Needless to say, J was thrilled.
