The Disappaearing Inkcap

 I'd never realised until now how quickly shaggy inckcaps dissolve themselves as part of their sporing process.

They are a common sight on our campus at this time of year, a magnificent sight - for a fungus - when they are at their peak with their white scalloped fruiting bodies. It's easy to see why they are known as "lawyers wigs".

But they begin to dissolve almost immediately, the cap curling up and turning black at the bottom as it drips spores into the air. But I hadn't realised how fast it happens.

The first two photographs were taken 5 hours apart yesterday, the third today. Dramatic, I'm sure you'll agree.

Charms of goldfinches up to 20 strong are flitting about noisily around the various clumps of teasel - they love the seeds. Random wildflowers are emerging in the meadow - an ox-eye daisy, and another flora incognita find, a pink flower called a musk mallow.

But the autumn rains are falling and now we have the damp greens of October setting in, and in Nottinghamshire, a new lockdown setting in. 

Plough on, is all I can do.

  4. My name is Mr TONY DWAYNE,my wife was having affair with a senior secretary in her office. I love this woman so much that i would not want to share her with any body. i told her to retire from the job and i would take care of all her needs but she would take it because she is been embraced by everybody in her office, this normally leads to quarrel every-time. i tried all i can to please her and she will promise to be good , some days later she will turn back to her normal way.
    i was nearly loosing out, i could not focus in my job, my whole life was full of sorrow and i was thinking i should kill the other man my self and put an end to all this until i saw a testimony from a blog on how IKHIDE could cast a love spell to bring lovers back no matter what is behind the disappointment. so i decided to write him via email:- dr.ikhide@gmail.com and now all my wishes are exactly as i wanted. She told me everything that has happened secretly in the past and i forgave her as DR IKHIDE instructed me to and she loves me and care for me as i ever wanted. i know there are many spells that do not work but i want to assure all you out there no matter what you have been trough to have faith and believe that this is the final solution to your problem.
    Even if my job is taking most of my time, the little free time i have , i will share the good news to everyone in the world because i know that with love brings happiness and hope for a long life.
