September 3rd – Good to see the fungus starting to kick off for the autumn, I adore the mycology.
These earth balls have appeared on Clayhanger Common, and although not prime specimens, they’re the start of a season of wonders of the fungi world that’ll fascinate me for weeks if not months.
These will grow, then ripen until ready, whence they’ll burst upon contact with some passing animal, spreading their spores for another season – and the cycle will continue.
One great thing about the autumn for sure.
