A Native Plant

On November 1, I encountered these beautiful specimens of Amanita muscaria growing in a front yard on West 31st Avenue in Vancouver. Are these edible? According to Wikipedia, perhaps, but only under certain conditions. It's best only to admire them. I wonder how the animal feels that took a bite from the one in the left background.

In the same front yard, these more mature specimens are growing.

Dear Janice, These look good enough to eat but I understand that may not be the best thing to do. Here we are enjoying a very warm, sunny, beautiful day.
Indian summer finally arrived! Last weekend we went camping in the rain but it was still fun.
Love, Sister Judy
