In an attempt to search out colour in our constant parade of grey,gusty, damp days here is Pink from my garden.
Fly Agaric toadstools often appear in our garden at this time of the year. They are often seen under the Silver Birch trees in the front garden.
I was surprised to come across these two under the Rock Roses and Kowhai tree in the back garden.
They are poisonous and have mind altering chemicals if ingested so I will only be observing their vibrant colours and markings.
It would seem that these toadstools are found in many countries around the world. Do you see them where you live?
We have had some welcome rain this week with some warmer temperatures and the garden is bursting with spring growth and beauty. It has been a very wind free year where I live and normally spring growth takes a battering. It is thriving without the damaging winds and I am really enjoying that.
