Thursday 23rd October 2014
It was showery today, so I took Jez and Max up to Broadstone Rec. where we at least had some modicum of cover from the trees. Today there was a very autumnal feel to the place. The acer that I like so much was looking fabulous in it’s autumn colours.
And the leaves of this maple were turning a lovely shade of burgundy, before they turned yellow and fell.
Elsewhere the Old Man’s Beard is still hanging on.
But along the side of the path the cyclamens are in bloom.
There was a mystery to today’s walk, however, and it was this.
I still don’e know what it was. A close crop looks like this.
It doesn’t appear to be a fungi so I wondered if it was eggs. The folks at Dorset Wildlife Trust have suggested that it might be a slime mould. So if anyone knows what it is, please let me know.
A year ago today
We went for a walk in the sunshine on Canford Heath.
