We had done this walk before. Bus to Lowestoft, bus out to Oulton Village, then walk by greenways and the occasional backroads to Hopton and bus back home. 10 miles. We were expecting to find loads of fungi.
These “tufts” greeted us as we got off the bus. The only fungi encountered for many a mile
But of colour there was plenty
Look closely. This reed head is beaded with sparkling dew
And there were plenty of trees along the greenways, but once you’ve seen one greenway… you know what they say… instead, I give you a mini-plantation
and a dam (no, not beavers, possibly the kids with their long lockdown vacation)
Through Flixton Wood, and a view over Flixton Marsh
And here, what a delightful place to live, between woods and marsh, at the end of long-long lane
At last! A fungus found, hiding away in the grass
I loved this scene: the haws of the thorn, with ivy in flower and berries forming… and the wasp
Ah-ha! The Peacock suns itself, inviting my camera
Daughter, taking social distance to the extreme. In truth, she’s scouting ahead for fungi
and now we’ve found one…
Somerleyton, where we stopped for lunch the dew still lay on the grass
and to finish the day, a flourish of purple (have to love that dogwood!!!)
But that’s all folks for the fourth of November. Hope you enjoyed these colours of Suffolk. More photos next week.
