Monday evening just as I was finishing tea a large tractor pulled into the yard. It had only come to fetch the dumper but it was impressive. It would have taken me all on to climb into the cab. I’d have needed some soothing music and a recuperative nap when I got there.
It is smaller than the combine but still an impressive machine.
This morning I took a couple of flower pictures.
Thank you Keith
I now don’t need to guess which one. I used to think they were non prickly thistles but I am not that daft these days.
I then wandered into the forest.
I decided to walk anti clockwise this morning and not twenty yards from the path I noticed this strange fungus. I’m not sure what it is as it seemed to be growing on a pine stump.
It is quite large at over a foot across and I think it is Chicken of the Woods; Laetiporus sulphureus.
It isn’t it’s Dyers Maizegill, Phaeolus schweinitzii. Many thanks Trevor.
I have seen this once before but I'm sure it was growing on Oak. This was a bit slimy so even if it is Chicken of the Woods I wouldn’t fancy eating it.
