Greetings friends!

When you go to the forest for mushrooms, your basket fills with mushrooms gradually, mushroom after mushroom, although sometimes there are exceptions when you find a whole colony of mushrooms.

I experienced something similar when I received several thousand postage stamps for my birthday, they were heaped on the carpet and I sorted a series of postage stamps for a long time, but it was no less exciting than picking mushrooms in the forest.

Today is a unique day when I can put two hobbies together and talk about both postage stamps and mushrooms.

The Mushrooms 1980 series of postage stamps issued in Poland in 1980 will help me in this.

On another and not the cheapest postage stamp with a denomination of 8 Polish zlotys, we inject a very controversial mushroom Cauliflower Fungus (Sparassis crispa).

I said that this mushroom is controversial, yes, it looks very strange, but it is edible and has the ability to fight cancer cells, which means it is very useful. It is a parzite that causes red rot on wood, but it is also an antiseptic that resists the formation of most molds.

This mushroom looks very fragile, but when it is overripe, it ages, it becomes hard like wood.

I have seen these mushrooms are small in size, but it is believed that it can weigh more than five kilograms.

That would be a nice catch for a mushroom picker.

As for the postage stamp, its circulation has decreased by three times, compared to the previous postage stamps from this series, which means that this postage stamp is more rare.

Let's take a look at this postage stamp.

I edited a photo in the program PhotoDirector, which I also installed on my smartphone.
For my publications, I do not use stock photographs, it is fundamentally important for me to use photographs that I have made with my own hands for publication and I can name them - authorial work.
