as a cute personal aside, my hubby made up Amanita muscaria balloons for my 50th birthday party!

it worst when you think a balloon is a mushroom, if so calvatia soccerii would be very common!

Or perhaps some kind of croquet ball out of Alice in Wonderland.

It was really quite picturesque. The little one to the side really added
to the image.
