Candle snuff fungus is a common fungus in the wooded areas of Edinburgh. It grows on rotting wood and is often found on fallen trees or rotten fence posts. It's an odd looking thing and until recently I was always forgetting its name.... It seems to be more common than usual this year, maybe something to do with the unseasonably warm winter we're having. These are two patches of candle snuff fungus that I found today in Colinton Dell alongside the Water of Leith.
Hello, cool looking fungus. I hope the parakeet survives the wild. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead! Wishing you and yours a blessed and Merry Christmas!
Actual green! We're in a snowy deep freeze!!!!
That's pretty fungi. Poor birdy, I hope he makes it through the winter. We have whole colonies of monk parakeets living nearby here in Florida -- also started from escapees, but our climate is more conducive.
I'd love to see a parakeet! They seem to be getting more and more widespread
A coworker and her mom once spotted a parakeet flying around their home. Her mom put her finger out like a perch and the parakeet landed on it. They put it in a cage. Sigh. I hope this little on in Scotland keeps getting to fly around free. (Although I wonder if it is too cold for it.)
Wouldn't it be good if you do see that parakeet!
I like the fungus!
All the best Jan
