Fungi on Friday

It has been a good art day today. I managed to get town, work-work and community grants stuff done by late morning so even made it to the studio (garage) before lunch.

I worked on my letters for ALaW 2011; and was beating up a storm on a 'litter' of leaves. But also I had noticed that the recent heavy rain had resulted in lots of different fungi on the block; and even my book stacks have got mould and fungi.

The photo below shows the mould and fungi on the book stacks.

And the other photos are of fungi in the garden and on some of my wood blocks (tree trunks).
