These are the fungi from the other day, already about twice the size. Their growth rate is amazing. If I don't pass that log for a couple of days, I probably miss an entire life cycle.

Fungi again and COVID, and advice seeking
Yesterday I had the latest covid booster, very little reaction this time, surprisingly, considering the dramatic reaction I had with previous covid vax.
The appointment also saw a phenomenon which seems to follow me about. It's happened many times over the years, when I walk into a public place people seem to think I work there or something, who knows why. Even if I'm wearing a coat, clearly a member of the public.
Yesterday I was waiting for my vax, and a woman came up to me and asked if everyone was waiting for shots, not rxs, and how long was the wait. I said they seemed to be running a bit late, and she looked quite unsatisfied, as if I were fobbing her off.
When I'd been attended, another woman asked me when she would be called. She looked a bit sceptical when I explained I'd been seen late, so I supposed they were running late. I got out before anyone demanded to talk to my manager!
This happens quite a bit, usually comic relief. Like the woman who wanted to know some staff-related thing about an art exhibit I was visiting. I explained I didn't know, I was visiting, And she snarled "Is that meant to be an excuse?"
Why, why! And don't get me started on people asking for street directions, the worst person you could ask! If they're aggressive, I do my best, but wonder where they end up. The worst offenders on demanding directions have had NY number plates... the advent of GPS has helped me a lot. I don't use it, but if other people do, they leave me alone.
Happy day everyone, if there's anything you need to know, I'll try to help, but I don't work here!
