Parrot Wax Caps

This appears to be an excellent year for fungi in our small meadow garden in Fairlight with several different species appearing so far. Nestled amongst the mossy edge these striking little Parrot Wax caps were spotted. When first emerging they tend to be bright green in colour and very slimy. The colour gradually fades to a more mellow yellow. Reputed to be edible but not particularly enjoyable on account of the slime!
