Black Fungi — I can’t believe it! (Reblog)

I seem to have come across a few black fungi recently, so tried to identify them. This one was in grassland on a cliff in Devon in the summer, 1-2 inches across. I’m not sure about this, but it could be indigo pinkgill. This one was on a dead birch log in the autumn in […]

Hunstanton is one of the better seaside towns of Norfolk, in East Anglia, England.

With travel restrictions in place for most of the year, plus a curtailed holiday season, many Brits have been making the most of their own backyard, including traditional the traditional seaside.

We may be approaching the New Moon in Leo but early today marks a positive boost from the trine (120 degree) aspect from the Sun and Mercury in fiery Leo to Mars in rampant Aries, both the Sun and Mars in their signs of dignity.

We should all have felt some kind of energy surge, but especially you Leo, Aries, Scorpio, Gemini and Virgo types, a wish to enjoy and experience the summer holidays to the full to dispel that Monday morning feeling perhaps?

And with the Moon also just entering Leo, wherever you live, just get out and about and make the most of your day, or evening; socialise, entertain!

Didn’t feel anything different? Ah well.
