Walking in the Wolds

If you enjoyed my lichen walk a couple of weeks ago, I think you’ll like this post too.

When I stopped to take the second photograph for my diary of a field, I noticed a fallen tree trunk which is screened by the remains of a hedge and the undergrowth of the verge. It’s obviously been there for a long time but I’ve never observed it before.

When I got closer I realised there was some beautiful fungi growing on the rotting wood.

This patch of moss was like a flecked, tufted carpet.

And a couple of struggling plants were trying to make a new life for themselves in the cracks and crevices.

Rather a surprise to find so much!

Thanks for reading my blog today. Hope your day is going well. If you’re stocking up your Kindle for the holiday season visit our website for details of some books you might have missed.
