Naval fungal finds

In the grounds of the Naval college at Dartmouth in Devon the sun shone , the leaves glowed and the fungi gave a brilliant display.

These formed dense clumps in a ring, maybe in the outline of a now gone tree stump.

Lots of the fungi had been eaten by slugs and snails but the clump above were perfect.

Along with the fungi there was an amazing crop of sweet chestnuts which were littering the grass.

A really interesting slice from a fallen tree was labelled up in the grounds with key events and dated back to the Irish potato famine in 1845.

The weather was perfect in Dartmouth, the trees beautiful and the fungi fruiting !
