Fly

It was a bit wet under foot this morning as Malcolm and I set out with our friend Kay, for a walk around the farmland surrounding Head House Farm, on Shipley Park.  Shouldn't grumble though, we do need the rain to help fill up the brooks and lakes.  Returning via the old colliery paths, it was nice to see so many of the Fly Agarics (Amanita muscaria) still in full colour amongst the Birch trees along the pathways.  They really are a wonderful sight.
Some are becoming very large indeed, standing almost a foot high and with a cap nearly as wide.  I have mentioned them before of course, but thought them to be worth another mention after our rather 'boggy' walk today.
