Photo Every Day #282

I nearly forgot I had this photo to share! It's of nice, big red toadstools that I found under a bush at the Walled Garden. Apparently, the word toadstool is not the type of mushroom as I thought it was, but it's actually a made up word which is found in German folklore and early fairy stories. It relates to German stories in which toads sat on the mushroom in order to catch the flies that were trying to get to eat the mushroom itself. It also tends to be used when mushrooms are suspicious or poisonous. In other news, today was Asami's first trip to the vets. It didn't go down too well with her which isn't surprising to be fair. She had her first vaccination, was given flea and worming treatment and she had to have to ears swabbed and cleaned as the vet thought it looked like she had either ear mites, which are common in kittens, or a build up of wax. Either way, she has nice clean ears now, but has been scratching them all day as I think the drops must have made them feel funny. She's been very sleepy and is now conked out on a hot water bottle under a fleecy blanket.
