There are Chanterelles in abundance in the woods.
These are Cantharellus cibarius, and a beautiful eggy yellow.
They’ll be perfect with scrambled eggs on toast later.

Then, here’s a Winter Chanterelle on the left and a Chanterelle on the right. Just to confuse everyone, the French appear to call Chanterelles, Girolle and Winter Chanterelles, Chanterelle.
I’m tempted to say that’s why we have scientific names, but Craterellus tubaeformis used to be Cantharellus tubaeformis and before that was called Cantharellus infundibuliformis. It’s terribly confuserous.
They are delicious.
