New Shoots, Playing Place and More Fungi

I was weeding the wild garlic from our front garden this morning when I was surprised and delighted to see some Daffodil shoots, hope for a bright Spring right there in front of me and then, I found three more!

My walk today took me past our Plain an Gwarry, a small amphitheatre, used for small productions in better times.┬áThe name derives from Cornish plen an gwari (meaning “playing place”), an open-air performance area used historically for entertainment and instruction.

A lovely friend sends photos of her walks each day and today found this amazing toadstool, which another of our friends says is a Parasol Mushroom. J described it as being, ” Beautiful!┬áMassive toadstool! Looked almost carved out of wood!” I would love to find a perfect specimen like this one.

Parasol Mushroom, thanks J for permission to use your photo.

Simon Reeve’s programme about Cornwall was on last night. It is brilliant. In his own inimitable style, it shows the Duchy, beauty and warts and all and is a very important programme that should be seen widely. I hope you can get it through the red link.
