Posted on October 26, 2014 by WillemSaturday/ more mushroom One more update on the mushroom from Friday – the last one, I promise. It’s just that I feel a little like Tintin in ‘The Shooting Star’ .. facing a mushroom that grows to be very big in a short space of time. The top of the mushroom has flattened out, and is now about 10 inches across. Here are Tintin and Snowy (from the German translation of The Shooting Star), discovering what they first think is a bird’s egg, and then realizes it is a mushroom. (Spoiler alert : And what happened to the giant mushroom? It exploded.).
