Seeds, Fruits and Fungus

Sunday, July 29th 2018

Once flowers have been pollinated they set seed.  Marsh Cinquefoil is only found on the wetland.

Many different insects can be seen on this flower, butterflies, bees and flies.  Whoever does the pollination the seeds have set well this year.

I have to admit that I did not think our Raspberries would have a successful crop, but they have proved me wrong and the stems are covered in ripe, quite large Raspberries.  Birds and small mammals will be enjoying the feast.

The rain of recent days will help the Blackberry fruits to develop.

Rowan or Mountain Ash is usually one of the first trees showing ripe fruits.  Blackbirds and Thrushes enjoy eating these, leaving uneaten pieces strewn across the path.

Fungi like warm, damp conditions.  We can tick the warm box but certainly not the damp one, until the last few days, but this has not stopped the Chicken of the Woods fungi developing on several of the large logs .
