A few Autumn photos, the vine growing on this cottage at Charlestown caught my eye.
The Gover Valley, where I often walk, is very damp following lots of rain. The fallen leaves, which cover the ground, are sludgy and slippery.
The dampness seems to agree with various fungi.
The small, delicate fungi below gave the impression of somewhere the little people may hide away as us humans pass by.
Now these are much bigger. I should really know the names of the various fungi but I have failed miserably.
Now I do know the name of these leaves turning to a pleasant yellow shade. They belong to the dreaded Japanese Knotweed.
Next, a bit brighter, some fine red berries for the birds to munch.
Meanwhile on the coastal path the ferns have turned brown and the trees have lost their leaves.
