Walking the dog, no matter what the season, is great for clearing the head and its where I ponder things. Most days its gardens (of course) and sometimes frivolous things but today it was fungus.

I say every year that ‘I must do a fungi hunting excursion’ of course I never get the time but today I stumbled upon a clearing full of all sorts of colourful gems. In a roughly 6mx3m area there were around 11 different fungi all very pretty and ranging from the size of a pea to the size of a cd case.

I haven’t picked any because you just know that amongst these beauty’s is something that could do some serious harm. So instead I took some pictures, please excuse the quality they are only on my phone.
