Stunning photograph - every time I see this I think of the original sculpture in Bantock Park, Wolverhampton of Flora the Highland Cow.  ^Wilf

brownhillsbob:

August 20th - another fruit that’s set to be in abundance this autumn are haws, the berries of the hawthorn. Bright red, bitter and woody, they’re not toxic and can make decent jams and wines; but to me, their primary purpose is to provide sustenance for the birds, who flock for their goodness in winter. At the moment, these copious tiny berries are orange-green, and these fine examples were spotted in the hedgerow at Green Lane.

Enough sun and they’ll be pillar-box red, another fine sight and indicator of the passing year.

If you’ve not come across @brownhillsbob - you are missing a real trooper in the blogging and social media world.  ^Wilf

Velvet shank on a dead tree by Dave_A_2007 on Flickr.When you take a walk on the wildside, you often see that death is not the end; indeed quite the opposite.  Death can be the beginning.
Here is a great example of that - shown beautifully by Dave, our Flickr contributor, who shared this lovely photograph with us that he took down at Smestow Valley.
This velvet shank thrives on the trunk of a dead tree.  For more information about the velvet shank - click the link.
