When i was younger my dad used to take me and my brother mushroom catching.

We had to leave at about 6 in the morning so that the mushrooms would still be asleep. We had to creep up the field slowly and throw our coats over them before they ran away.

Every time I went into town with my mother we would walk past a store with a large (aspidistra) plant in a hideous green pot displayed in their window.

"What an abortion!" My mother would exclaim.

Many years later (and ago) when training to be a nurse, the teaching matron asked us to raise our hand if we knew the meaning of the word 'abortion'. Mine was the only hand up.

I explained it was a big green plant pot. . .

There is a very nice shrub called a Snowball Tree.
As a child I believed that it had poisonous fumes at night so you had to be careful not to fall asleep under it.

When I was very little, I used to think that sticks that had fallen from trees and were lying on the ground were a hard, non-smelly version of dog poo.

I was convinced by my older cousin that if I put moss in the letterbox then when you had enough the mailman paid you $10.00 We were 8 and 6 at the time.
Needless to say my mum always wanted to know why some idiot kept putting moss in the letterbox.

On the way home from the shops, my brother and I used to walk through the local woods while our mum walked on the pavement. There was a large tree near to the end of the wood which had a root sticking out of the ground. There was a hole in it just big enough for a childs foot so everytime we got to it we'd put a foot in and proclaim, 'Thank you tree god for letting us pass'. I'm not sure if we thought this tree really owned the woods or not and if we didn't thank him he'd make us get lost, but we always did it.

me and my elder brother always made fun of our younger cousin. once we took showed him a dry leaf of mango tree and told him if he touched it he 'll get crumpled. Until he was 14 he would just run away whenever he saw the leaf.

I remember planting sesame seeds from the top of a hamburger bun in one of my mom's planters. I watered and checked every day for weeks waiting for my hamburger tree, but it never came.....

I used to believe that we had to be really quiet when we went mushroom hunting. Otherwise the mushrooms would hide. (My Dad told us this to keep us in line) I think it was jr high biology when I learned the truth.

My friends scared me when I ate Boysenberries. They said they were poisonberries and couldn't wait till I died so they could have all of my toys.

The shrub wasn't really even boysenberry; but I suffered no ill effects (except for the paranoia).

I used to and still believe that if I look at fungi or go near it for too long, the fungi will make my brain melt! I don't know why I think this but now I try and avoid fungi whenever I can!

i told my little sisters that the big weeds behind our house would eat them if they hurt the weeds. one of the girls stayed up all night with a golf club, waiting for the weed to come get her. the next morning, after no weed shows up, she beat the weed into puree, and threatened to come after me next. ;)

I used to believe when I was a small boy growing up in The Bahamas that palm trees created the wind, I remember it would make hand line fishing impossible, So I would go around flipping all the palm trees off.
