After the Rain

It rained a lot last night though today has been mostly beautifully sunny. The Water of Leith is very high after all the rain, particularly noticeably so at the weir above Kate's Mill


The fungi also love the wet weather, these puff balls are emerging for a second year


and this hairy stereum seems to be totally taking over the tree it's growing on

Today we have a rainy day, that's why I have time for blogging. Love the different fungi in this blogpost, especially the puff balls.

The puff balls look like an alien army!

It's a very fine walk down Edinburgh's River in any season with plenty of wildlife and local interest. Great spot by the Dean village!

Envy the rain. We have had but a spit for two months now. We normally have little summer rain here in the Pacific NW but this is the longest string of days with rain ever!!!
