With widespread rains finally lashing the city yesterday, here is the perfect drawing to celebrate the season. Toadstools or mushrooms crop up every monsoon after a spell of showers, adding some drama to our daily walk in the park.
Pity these pretty things don't last more than a day, unless they are the large variety that grow next to trees, like the ones in the picture below.
Over the years I have collected some of these dried-up mushrooms from my walks. They now liven up my terrace garden as props for the plants.
