The rain has almost stopped at last, just a shower now and then. I hope it stays fine for the thousands of holiday makers this Easter Weekend. We always stay home at Easter now that we are retired as it is madness on the roads and accommodation is twice as expensive as usual. However, I did spend a little time in the garden. Everything has grown green and quickly except the daisies which drowned in all the wet.
One of the worst things about the rain is the appearance of the most revolting fungi you have ever seen or smelt.
These gross looking and smelling things are popping up all over the garden. You can see new ones just emerging from the the ground. They are called Stinkhorn Fungi.
I can't help thinking they look like penises and they smell even worse.
They have a sticky cap and the flies love them. The smell is like something has died and in the evenings its the worst and even wafts in the windows.
This one is a bit limp. He mustn't be very excited to see me. After a few days they collapse and disappear but then a new crop appear. When the ground dries out they won't grow any more until next wet season.
