Toadstools and Faeries

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.

  1. it is just that kind of weekend, don’t you think. The fairy ring is exquisite and I love the church.
    It is also the year for lady birds, we have a plethora of 7 spot ones in the garden, park, city… just about everywhere.
