The Psychedelic Golf Ball

View On Black

Two days of rain and no promised thunderstorms, It’s amazing that in the course of two weeks the New Forest has been completely transformed. The last time we were here the sun was shining, the heather was purple, dragonflies were on the wing and lizards were basking. Now everything looks cold and beige.

The forest floor looks marvellous though. Scattered leaves, broken decaying branches and fungi of every colour and size. You could spend a day with here your mushroom guide trying to identify them all. None as pretty as the highly misunderstood Fly Agaric though. I love the way they start off as psychedelic golf balls and expand into huge red tea plates. Very Lewis Carroll.

Kinda creepy how the leaves form circles around them though…………
