Today l walked down into Putney, to buy some paints for my journalling from London Graphics. The walk down was a lot easier than it had been at the weekend. The reason being, most of the snow on the pavements has now melted. l walk through the woods and although a lot of snow has melted, it still looks beautiful. There were one or two intact snowmen left on the cricket pitch but most of them have been broken up and but one did remain intact, as you can see from the image below. Love the sense of humour of the person who gave this snowman a cup of coffee!
This tree is my favorite in this part of the woods. It is so full of bumps, holes and fungi and its shape is just incredible. I wonder how old it is?
As l reached the end of my walk through the trees, l caught a glimpse of a squirrel and a magpie, having a sort of "testing" session. The magpie would rush the squirrel and then stop, then the squirrel would do the same and so it went on for ages, or so it seemed to me. I couldn't get an image of them together as they were moving so fast all the time and totally unpreditable. Then a crow came along and they all went their own way. Great to watch but l did get rather cold!
As l now have my Nikon camera back, l took some better images of some fungi that has been fascinating me for weeks. It is still difficult to take images of it because it is quite far back and behind bars, of a private garden. If anyone reads this and know what this is called...please tell me!
Further down the hill, in the front garden of a block of flats, is a large fungi that l have been checking on and recording its growth, for the last 12 weeks. I thought the snow may have killed it off..but no. A bit smaller and a bit darker but still there!
