It is thought that the red and white colouring of the Fly Agaric, was the inspiration for Santa Claus' red and white suit as they were commonly seen on Victorian Christmas cards as a symbol of good luck.

It has been 'all go' here lately. Malcolm and I have been busy over the last week or so, firstly having a new boiler and heating system installed, then in choosing a new kitchen. Thankfully, things calmed down a bit this morning and we were able to get a nice - if a little windy - walk through Shipley Park. Of course, it being the beginning of November, it's worth looking out for the autumn season's fungi and we certainly found some nice ones this morning.
