Autumnal Display

Even though Autumn heralds the onset of the harder times of Winter ahead, it's a season i have always enjoyed, not only because of the wealth of fruits and nuts that can normally be foraged, the sounds and the hive of activity of the wildlife as they make their own preparations for Winter, not just the large animals that most people see, but the smaller mammals as well, just go in to your woods, and sit quietly on a log and they will soon make their presence known.

One of the things i really enjoy at this time of year though, are the magnificent displays of Fungi that appear at this time of year, it's a whole new world of beauty to explore and enjoy, from magnificent miniature forests of fungi to the the majestic Parasol mushrooms that stand proud & alone on the forest floor, but please remember, although fungi are incredibly beautiful, they can also be deadly, so if you are going to play with Mushrooms, please get some proper training from a Mycologist, so you know what you are dealing with and remember the old adage "if in doubt, leave it out".
