Red: Mushroom

what is the difference between a toad stool and a mushroom. When I was little, my grand dad said, a mushroom is plain looking and OK to eat, a toad stool is colourful but deadly.
The term "toadstool" was often, but not exclusively, applied to poisonous mushrooms or to those that have the classic umbrella-like cap-and-stem form. 

During my recent trip to Singapore, I forgot I was in Singapore and went for long walks, and I saw these mushroom/toadstool.
 I was so hot that I wanted to faint. I don't think it was due to touching the toadstools. My maternal grandma would say," Silly girl."

We got a little rain about a month ago, and big white mushrooms popped up in my yard. Nothing as colorful as yours.

That is exactly what I thought when I seen it in your hand. Why is she touching it!!! But how pretty! I always been told if you are not an expert, just don't touch. Maybe that is too protective of me, but I am glad you are alright, and at least for to enjoy their beauty.

Hi Susie, I did not think!!!! I just thought if I don't eat it, I will be fine. Rather silly of me, because I will post another rather horrifying tale.
