Gathering wild mushrooms is a pleasant and fairly popular activity in France, so much so that whenever one has a doubt about whether a mushroom is comestible, one can simply take it to any drugstore where its identification is offered as a free and friendly service by pharmacists. These bonnets look to me to be of the mostly non-comestible mycena genus of mushrooms, but I'm no expert. 

un champignon:  a mushroom; a fungus
une ville-champignon:  a boom town

Appuyer sur le champignon:  to step on the gas pedal; to accelerate
