Babes in the Wood

 Hello again! I do hope you have been well and have been enjoying the new season. I have really been enjoying finding lots of Autumn treasures with my Little Sparkles. I am going to show you some pictures we took at Ivy Woods in the New Forest. Here we go! 
(But please don't rely on my identification on the mushrooms and toadstools - I have been a bit blasé in naming them on the basis that I have absolutely no intention of eating any of them edible or not!)

Autumn leaves. Actually this wasn't in the woods, this is the tree I can see from my garden but I wanted to show you!
A pretty dewdrop chandelier
The Blusher (Amanita rubescens)

Sharp!

Not sure what this was but it looked very pretty strung up in the trees.
Autumn textures.

Possibly a  Ruby Bolete (Boletus rubellus or Xerocomus rubellus)
Not sure what these ones were but I wouldn't have been even slightly tempted to eat these ones as they looked a bit slimey!

Saying hello to the New Forest Pony at the end of our walk.

A silver lining.
There, I hope you enjoyed my Autumn treasure hunt. I know there hasn't been much crafty stuff on here lately but I am going to be making some lovely Halloween bits next week, so come back soon!
