A week ago, I noticed what looked like a small white egg lying at the base of one of our garden stone walls. A closer look showed that the egg was actually an almost perfectly round white mushroom. I have never seen anything grow so fast… a few days later it was the size of a baseball and now it is larger than a volleyball. (And no, I’m definitely not a sports enthusiast, but these are the only comparisons that fit.)
Either this is a mushroom for the Guinness Book of World Records, or something really weird is about to hatch!
