Thursday 19th November 2020 Slape Lane, Lancelot Clark Storth (CWT)
It seems to take ages to get from A to B keep stopping to admire the rich beauties, but why on earth should I care when every glance is producing highlights whether it be fabulous plants most spent but some like the Red Campion coming back for another late blooming session! or fabulous fungi and lichens which have now come into their own.
I knew it was coming up somewhere along this canopied narrow slippery lane for me to see the Jelly Ear fungi which always appears to be so photogenic. A wrinkled ear or a furry velvety frosty look.

It is coming up to the time of Holly and the Ivy, and for me the Ivy is so special and you get so much variation in the colour of it's leaves, just like the pair in the next photo. I feel it is such a shame when I see ivy cut back. Why I especially love this particular plant is that it is probably the greatest food resource during the Autumn months for some of our main pollinators which include the wasp and hover-flies.
(Below) Hoggy, Hoggy Hoggy!! Hogweed - still blossoming some of the most beautiful umbellistic natural patterns, reminds me so much of when a child I would look through a kaleidoscope. So beautiful to see on a lovely November day.
