Autumn at Little Hampden
A quick walk round the village yesterday. Don still harvesting after a few wet weeks. Blackberries ripe and some of the trees just turning. We'll be lighting fires soon! I also found an enormous puff ball – must have been a foot across (300mm) Soon after spotting this, I met Mark with his knife. He was going to cut off some of this fungus and have it for supper. I offered to pop in later to check that he wasn't in a coma but Mark confidently declined.
