In addition to falling in love with wild mushrooms this winter, I have become fascinated by other fungi and also lichen. This was a particularly beautiful, very 3-dimensional specimen. I think it has an underwater quality about it, as well as appearing rather squiggly, don’t you think? Must be a hundred shades of olive inContinue reading “Lichen it, lichen it a lot”
We’ve been coming down at the start of winter every year since 2008 – and finally, finally – we have snow!!! Gorgeous, beautiful, wonderful snow! Snow makes me happy!
Yeah, yeah… but is what they do and what they were doing. I am especially fond of the bull in the hole. I’m sure there’s a twisted cliche in there – but one is probably enough for tonight…

It’s the perfect foil for a cerulean sky – the sort we get as aContinue reading “Oakley Creek Reflection 2 & 3”
Why else would a naked tree be standing out there, in the face of a coming storm?
Missing Malaysia these days… I wonder if it’s cos I’m still cold from winter and I’m longing for those languid 35 degree days in the jungle…
There’s all kinds of hunger – all kinds of hunger than need to be fed… (My husband suggests this would be found in Satan’s lounge. I can’t say I concur.)
