Found in my garden in Holywell Green this morning. Possibly Oyster mushrooms. They smell delicious, just like a fresh edible mushroom. 
At least something is enjoying this grey, damp weather.

Yes, it looks like an Oyster, Linda. If you take a spore print, it should be pale lilac. If it were a blewit, it would have a strong perfumey smell, and make a pale pink spore print. Both are edible by the way, not that this blog is just about edible fungi, everybody.
Oysters are  Pleurotus "like lungs" as in pleurosy.
Thanks for you post

  1. Hi Linda,
    It looks like they are Clouded Funnel (Clitocybe nebularis) to me.
