Green Mushrooms

Green mushroom
I'm in North Carolina this week where (sorry) the high temps are in the low 80's.  We've also had afternoon showers almost every day, so it's just right for me!  Yesterday morning I was walking around my yard and saw some green mushrooms.  I've never seen green mushrooms before.  I went in the house to get my camera and while I was gone, my dog unearthed the prettiest one.  So this is what I was able to capture:

A little research leads me to believe that this is Russula parvovirescens.  It appears to be edible, but not me, sister.  I don't trust myself enough!
