Every Monday and Friday a walking group, led by Barbara Reeve for the past four years, strides out in the parks and reserves of Canberra. Among them is Fiona Spencer (Kitchen Garden May 31) who told me that, throughout autumn, they have been stopping along the way to observe fungi, including toxic "fairyland" examples in Weston Park.
