This week Cee has a flower with a tape measure on sand. I have picked a photo I took earlier this week of a large sand-coloured fungus. It appears every year at about this time on a sycamore tree, being specific to trees in the maple family. Its common name is Dryad’s Saddle (Polyporus squamosus) according to The Observer’s Book of Mushrooms and Other Common Fungi (1978 edition).
Last year I posted other photos of this fungus and its host tree.
For Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge this week the topic is the letter G anywhere in the word. Do click the link to see Cee’s photos for this challenge.
On a short walk earlier this week I noticed an ash tree, which was just beginning to come into leaf. In a fork in the tree, where a large branch must have fallen perhaps due to storm damage, a different tree was growing with green leaves and dangling flowers. My letter G words are Green Growth.
The next day I had another look and I am fairly sure the green growth is a currant bush with green flowers.
Cee’s photo for the Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) has a hedge in the foreground. The photo I have picked is a view over a hedge in the countryside. In the distance is a field of daffodils and (in the far distance) some hills.
