A Shortcut to Mushrooms

On Sunday 2nd October our friend Lena C took us mushrooming in the mossy-floored pine woods north-east of Gothenburg where she grew up. Mushrooms everywhere. In about 1½ hours we picked a mass of funnel chantarelles. (Which then took 4 hours to clean and prepare when we got home.) It was a beautiful autumn day – misty and damp to begin with; later the sun came out and filtered down through the trees. Very peaceful except briefly when a family with young children came by.
