Zombie Fungi

Did you know that Sunday 13 October is National Fungus Day? To celebrate this fact the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in west London will open its Fungarium to the public. This is the largest collection of dried fungi in the world (CLICK). If dried fungi aren't your thing, how about willow sculptor Tom Hare's Fungi Fairy Ring (2013) shown. He depicts seven different species of native edible fungi in gigantic form. CLICK to view a BBC audio slide show by Paul Kerley and learn about Zombie Fungi. Yuck!
