Fungi finds

Keen local gardeners should keep an eye out for fungi sprouting out in their local garden.

Local Linda Watson sent in photographs of mushrooms which appear to be fly agaric or amanita muscaria, which are toxic to humans and animals.

These mushrooms are the fungal equivalent of a weed in New Zealand, Tasmania and Victoria, forming new associations with southern beech.

Shock win

A Drouin woman immediately jumped into an impromptu late-night cleaning session after discovering she had won more than $2.5 million in the weekend’s TattsLotto draw.

She held one of the two division one winning entries in Saturday’s Tatts Lotto draw, with each division one entry taking home $2,504,803.

The woman said she discovered she had won when she had randomly woken up at 2am and was unable to go back to sleep.

“I definitely couldn’t get to sleep after that,“ she said.

“I had to wait for my husband to wake up and it was killing me.

“I started doing all this ironing and cleaning while I waited.“

The woman said she and her husband had already begun dreaming how they would use the multi-million-dollar prize.

“There’s lots of things we’d like to do but helping the kids is a big one for us,“ she said.

“We’d also like to be smart and invest it for the future.

“We did have a little celebration last night with a couple of quiet drinks while watching television.“

The woman purchased her ticket at Drouin Lotto & Cards, with owner Raj Joshi said himself and the team were buzzing with excitement.

“We’re thrilled to have played a part in this incredible milestone and wish the winner all the best for the future,” he said.
