A couple more. Apparently the folly was built to look like a castle ruin.

Popped to Felixstowe this morning, the tide was high and the wind was blowing strong and it all made for a rough looking sea. Definitely looks better in black and white. If anyone has a micro four thirds camera, I can highly recommend the Olympus 1508 body cap lens. 15mm and a fixed aperture of f8.

Some pictures of todays walk with Mabel.

View from Todleth Hill


Parasols on Roundton Hill. We saw dozens of them all the way round our route. I took two young ones home to cook for lunch. Very tasty.

You need to know what you are doing when picking those sort of things to eat -
they could be poisonous for all I would know !

If I wasn't absolutely certain about what a particular type of mushroom is, I don't pick it.

Since the end of the last WW people in western society seem to have moved so far from any involvement with the natural world that they are largely afraid to pick any wild food at all any more. Very sad indeed.

As you say, you need to know exactly what you're picking. I saw this story a few weeks back about wild mushroom picking in France: https://www.connexionfrance.com/Fren...n-south-France

As the old joke puts it, you know it's a serious medical condition when it's named after three guys ...

before it was banned (in my youth) i used to go "mushy" picking including fly agaric. those were interesting times.

there is loads of foraging to be had these days as nobody is interested and would rather buy plastic containers of stuff from supermarkets.. its a shame.
