Five black and white everyday photos: 1

Five photos of my everyday life, in black and white. Day one, fungus.

My gardens have just had a professional makeover. The gardener re-made four identically shaped gardens with the same range of plants repeated in each. But in one of them, under and around a grevillea, a leathery tan fungus is growing, apparently not a bad thing. It’s possibly a saprophytic cup fungus feeding on the rotting forest litter used as mulch. I just spotted it a couple of days ago. It’s a real head-turner and typically evokes this reaction: Whoa, what’s that?

  1. Thank you for the attribution, Trish. Maybe I should join this as a blog challenge. It was originally a Facebook challenge, which I received from a close female relative ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I took advantage of your challenge to test my blog’s ‘publish’ function. Again. Another of my subscribers says she hasn’t received any messages, so I’ve changed a couple of things and now I’m testing it.
