Shaggy ink caps

Shaggy ink caps just outside the back door

I’ve never seen any shaggy ink caps in the flowerbed before and I’ve no idea what made them suddenly spring up.

There are lots of them! And in all stages of birth, life and decay.

The broken one on the right of the photo looks particularly like a Lawyer’s Wig, which is the other name for them (although ‘Judge’s Wig’ might be better).

They’re supposed to be good to eat, if somewhat slimy, but I’ve no intention of confirming this first hand.
