  1. Most likely! I apologize for the lack of photos, I do have one closer up, but at the time I wasn't sure whether to harvest them or leave them be, so I left them as they were. Next time I visit the area I will definitely collect some of them. Thanks so much once again! (:
  2. Hello all! Hope you are having a good day today. I stumbled upon this magnificent log hosting small clusters of these bright orange-yellow mushrooms in Autumn last year (North Wales, UK). However when I drove past them again in the winter they had shriveled up and turned a light brown color. I have had someone tell me that they could be part of the Flammulina Velutipes species but I would just like to receive a second opinion. Also, I would like to know if they could somehow be preserved nicely? I like to work with fungi and flora in my art projects so it would be lovely to incorporate them into my work somehow if possible, and if so, will their vibrant color return with the seasons? Thank you so much in advance!
  3. These mushrooms deteriorated rapidly when left on their own, except the one I placed in an air-tight glass jar (which has maintained its form and color well interestingly enough!). Next time I come upon them I will definitely try your idea of preserving them in resin. Thank you for your detailed response. I really do appreciate it. Hope you have a great day!
  4. Hi dave! Thank you so much for the detailed reply, it has been very useful. Like you said, I have left the mushrooms and they have deliquesced very quickly. I will look into the mushrooms you suggested that can be for artistic purposes. I hope you have a good day!
  5. Hello all! I was wondering if any of you could help me identify these mushrooms I found on my walk? (North Wales, UK!) I'm asking because I like to make nature sculptures (I think that's what their called????) and would love to incorporate them into what i'm making right now but I don't know if they are suitable. Thanks a lot! (: ps: ignore the pine cones and the bark haha! I couldn't help myself....
