Until recently I did not know the red topped toadstools were real! I always thought they were from fairytales! A friend of mine recently showed me a photo of some she had taken photos of at Emerald Lake in the Dandenongs. Well I was so excited off I went Sunday afternoon, toadstool hunting! The official name is Amanita muscaria, I like to call them fairy toadstools!
I was very pleased to find this little toadstool under the trees. No fairies were in sight though!
