Welcome to the 'World of Mushrooms'!!


Most of us enjoy the occasional walk in the bush, some more than others. Some people will go for an easy going stroll through the local park while others will go on a two day hike in rough forest and harsh conditions.


We have different reasons for doing this, maybe it helps us relax or get away from it all, some people do it for sport, others like to bond with nature and some just love the wild, the trees and the birds!!! Whatever the reason, we decide to go for a bush walk, we wake up early in the morning have breakfast, put on our hiking boots, pack some lunch and hot tea, throw the camera bag over our shoulders, hop in the car and have a great day in the wild!!! Lots of photos are taken.

When the film is developed, we look proudly over our colorful creations and remember all the different landscapes we saw, maybe some plants or trees that looked lovely against the sunlight and some snaps of friends who joined us on the hike.


This site is exactly like the title suggests, a small glimpse into the world of mushrooms, yes, mushrooms, the little plant like organisms that we walked right past or even stepped on during our hike but didn't even see them. Or maybe we did see them but paid no attention or maybe didn't even recognize them as mushrooms and if we did, we called them toadstools and carried on walking.


After viewing this site I hope you will return from your next hike with one or two photos, or at least memories of a mushroom or two!!


Mushrooms are some of the least known life forms, sure everyone knows what they are, but most have no idea how diverse their kingdom is and know nothing of the kind of beauty held within this kingdom!!


This site was published to show these magnificent organisms with all their beauty, and to hopefully increase the interest and awareness of yet another aspect of nature so frequently ignored.


All about mushrooms is updated regularly with new mushrooms and photos. So please visit again soon.  If you have any comments, suggestions or questions, please feel free to sign the guest book or e-mail us.
