What not to look for in Autumn



Blackberries -




choose between wizened
or unripe.


Our meagre harvest today.

However yesterday,
out on the Ashdown Forest


the Ladybird book came to life.


Fly-agaric toadstools with their scarlet umbrellas,



A colony of fungi with shiny yellow tufts
called sulphur tuft.

And as a bonus:


an iron spring,


a teepee in a clearing,


an old orchard,


and a fine vine.

  6. What to look for in Spring, summer, autumn and Winter - we had all 4 of those Ladybird books. (And many more.) Thanks for the memory. They do possess an innocent charm.

    Lovely pictures - your autumn is more picturesque than ours! Mud and grey skies are playing a big part at present.
