The up side of cold weather

OK, it’s cold. And a bit damp. On the other hand, any negative thoughts about this should be softened by the horrific reports we’re getting about heat waves in the northern hemisphere…

Kalimna Park, July 19: the fungus might be an Inocybe species? The red stalks belong to the moss Polytrichum juniperinum–Juniper moss.

And the good side is that mosses are abundant…and beautiful, if you’re prepared to get down and have a look. It seems the fungi season is on the wane, but there’s still a bit about. Time to get out and have a crawl?

Kalimna north end, July 19: the moss is one of our most attractive: Dawsonia longiseta.
