Things I have enjoyed this week

I am just posting a few photographs from things I have enjoyed seeing this week.  Why not!

Here is my cat Pippi, in all her furry loveliness.
We have quite a wide variety of fungi in the garden.  Some of it is positively evil-looking, with puffs of khaki-coloured spores when punctured, others are black and slimy, and then under a bench I found this.  It's a huge mushroom, 9" in diameter.  (Those of you who work in metric will have to work that out!  Sorry).

On Wednesday, as I headed off down the drive to the first meeting of our little book club (that should probably read 'wine club'), the early evening light, looking towards North Berwick law, was beautiful.  The lavender strip across the middle is a field of red cabbages.
 A flypast of geese this morning, chattering all the way, as they flew from east to west.
I am enjoying the field margins which are becoming more and more a feature of the countryside these days.  I am delighted because it can only help the bio-diversity of our environment, and what could be better than that!  The University of Reading has an interesting piece on the whys and wherefores of the field margins.  It's worth a read.
