First light, dew drops and fungi

My blog today is a bit of a mixed bag because it includes photos taken over the last couple of weeks including on this morning's walk. So the title is a little bit of an omnibus one.

Though the days are getting longer the early mornings are still dark - but just enough light to walk Treehaven Way.

The cool nights deliver crystal clear droplets on twigs flower and branches.

The fungi of course delight in the rotting wood and moisture.

And the valley shows off both its dark light and cloud scattered horizon.

A chorus of magpie song to welcome me back to the block after my walk this morning
