Hi - sorry I haven't been very active recently but here are some shots of Candlesnuff (or Stagshorn) fungus - Xylaria hypoxylon - I found in the garden the other day.

When I was reading up about it said it was actually edible, or at least wouldn't poison you, but it was a bit woody and not very tasty.

This is the last of the Shaggy Parasols today. It is approximately 6 inches across the top of the cap that has a lovely twirling pattern.
