The colours of Autumn

Look what I found nestled amongst the fallen leaves just by my place of work – several of these brightly coloured toadstools. They look so vibrant with their gaudy orange colouring and their white spots. They don’t last long though, the rain damages their tender flesh and makes them go all mushy. Some people like nothing better than giving them a good kick just to see them disintegrate into pieces.

DSCF3561 I wonder if the fairies come calling at night and sit on top of these lovely coloured toadstools? Wouldn’t that be wonderful to see?

They look like something you would find in a childrens story book don't they?

We were so delighted to see a lot of these gorgeous toadstools when we were in NZ, in fact I think Al took an arty shot in Te Anau somewhere of some that hadn't been kicked over - the fairies get very cross when that happens by the way!!
