Beginning of Winter

Saturday, November 30th 2013

As autumn draws to a close and winter begins there are still things to be seen around Foxglove.  Fly Agarics usually fruit in the warm, damp autumn conditions.  This one was seen on the way to the wetland this week.

Most flowers have dispersed their seeds but Hemp Agrimony still has many left hanging on.

Bees were photographed feeding on the flowers of this apple tree, in the early summer.  The result has been a tree covered in apples.  Some are just falling from the tree now and no doubt will feed many animals over the next few weeks.
