Contrasts

Wednesday was a treat, the morning was frosty and misty and then sunny. I enjoy wandering along the hedgerows with my dog. Believe it or not there is always something new to see, I spotted a lot of funghi or mushrooms growing at the base of a tree.



I also saw a new tree stump, the colour was really light and bright and it had lovely shadows on it. The French word for tree stump here.

Today I had planned to have a wander around Fougeres after my French class and go have some fun with my camera. But the weather was so closed in it was almost raining. So I stopped briefly on the way home and took a few pictures, the weather was dire.


I start to go a bit potty if I dont have a wander around the lovely town of Fougeres, I must check the weather forecast.
Here is a great weather word to get your teeth into Brouillard

Great pic of the stacked fungi. And love the misty trees. Sad to see the fresh cut tree stump. It's a crime!

That pile of mushrooms look just like little cakes in fluted papers. There's lots of tree stumps around here at the moment - in fact we have two silver birches that our neighbours are amazed we've kept. I think they think the English are a bit mad.

The misty trees and the fungi photos are beautiful. I wouldn't mind a wander around Fougeres myself.
