Perhaps one could imagine this mushroom bird feeder as a gnome or fairies high rise house. It is peaceful surrounds, one of the trees among the ruins
of Kirkstall Abbey, once a Cistercian monastery now part of a public park by the north bank of the River Aire. Everything was still green when this picture was taken in September however move on a month and the autumn colours are advancing with
mushrooms springing up in the woods, non more profuse than these Brittle Caps. I'll stick to the common name so don't ask me what type they are but they all like the damp and growing on old tree stumps. One variety of brittle cap whose name I like, and perhaps it could be the one I show, is called Psathyrella multipedata, the Latin multipedata means 'many feet' because each grow on top the other 'feet' in clusters. Little mushroom posies.
