I went out for a short walk around our church and came across this arc of toadstools, or “faerie ring”. It was really odd as just before I went out i had read a blog post on Chest of Delights and it was about faeries. Faerie rings are supposedly a way into our world from the world of the faeries/elves/pixies. So maybe we have a magical creature wandering around our village? They were amazing to look at and I had never seen them on this patch of grass before.
Also I took some pictures of other things in the vicinity. There is a plaque on the church wall commemorating the visit of George V in 1912. He surveyed the troops outside of the church, during the Army manoeuvres of 1912. it is in a sorry state and we are hoping to get it renovated. These are some of the words written on it.
George V. R.I.
Our King in mellow autumn tide
Here viewed a bloodless fray;
May duty, love and peace abide
To bless him day by day.
It was a delightful walk and the following photos are what I encountered! Apologies for the obsession with ladybirds continuing in this post, but they do seem to be everywhere at the moment.

Another mushroom, but a solitary one. I love the edging pattern, its so beautiful.
