Seeing red (and yellow)…

Today we went for a walk at Cameron Lodge Garden in Mount Macedon which is renowned for its beautiful historical gardens. Many of the gardens are over a 100 years old and contain fine examples of rare northern hemisphere trees and shrubs.  As we enter autumn the colours and fungi are magnificent.

The heavy morning fogs in autumn add a magical beauty to nature.  The water droplets on these spider webs highlight the amazing intricacies and also the skills of their builders.

Autumn blooms?

This afternoon I found fungi growing in the wood mulch of the garden – yes autumn is here.  Apart from the orange ones which were really bright, the others were so tiny I almost missed them.  Most were the size of a match head.  My knowledge of these types of fungi could probably fit on a match head so if anyone knows what they are I’d be glad to hear!
