Autumn things

Ornamental grapevine turning colour.



A self sewn pumpkin vine that now covers a large section of the backyard, started life in the timber compost heap.


 It's grown up over the chook house gate, no chooks currently in residence.

 
 



When walking Sophie yesterday I spied these Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly amanita, in a garden nearby.  I always think of them as fairy mushrooms.  I had only ever seen them in English illustrated fairy story books until a few years ago.  Couldn't believe my eyes when saw them, it was a magical moment.

I just love seeing the change of seasons in other places. I hope it isn't getting too cold there yet.

Fantastic photo.
The turning leaves haven't arrived yet in QLD - I'm patiently waiting.
