……..Just another walk around Colliery Dam Park.
It has been a very grey day today. No real rain, but the skys were low and dark. Our walk around Colliery was beautiful though.
It was so calm that the reflections in the lake were mirror like. It has been so wet that fungus and lichens were growing everywhere; grey lichens dripping from the trees; huge green lichens, looking like leaves growing from the branches of the bare trees.
My favorite find this walk were the fairy mushrooms, growing from the lichens and moss on the bark of the trees. Some of the mushrooms were no taller than an average pine needle! They presented themselves as single growths or more often in pairs. Once I saw the first group I spent the rest of the walk looking for them. Small bits of perfection popping out of the tree trunks.
