Magic mushroom

There are mushrooms scattered around the East End - but they're absolutely not edible! Artist Christiaan Nagel has made the brightly-coloured fungi from polyurethane. Although there are a number scattered around, the Brick Lane example is the one that makes me smile: with that texture and colour, it seems to be made of Wotsits.

Love the new colour scheme and really enjoy reading your very varied blog each day

Thank you, Sandra!

The new colour scheme is great, and looks very elegant - apart from being much easier to read! I love the birds in the background.
That mushroom would look even better if it had a caterpillar sitting on it smoking a hookah.

Thank you - and you're absolutely right, that mushroom is crying out for the caterpillar!
