2011 - My second year of blogging in Brittany

I felt I would like to share some of the photographs I have taken so far this year and some from other years. I live in a beautiful part of Brittany and just love being here. It's a lovely place to photograph and enjoy being in through all the seasons and hopefully this blog will show you where I live my life.

Walking around St André

I went for a walk the other afternoon,  from my hamlet through the woods, and these are some of the photographs which I took.


They seem to be doing a lot of logging on the slopes of the valley and not long after this point I lost the path and started up and across a field but couldn't seem to find a way out and had to backtrack.





































 























There were lots of fungi looking like this one but I have no idea what they were.


I did find this though, a parasol mushroom.  I had it identified by someone very knowledgeable in mycology but by then it had dried out too much for me to want to eat it.  I shall know where to look for it next year now.
 













 
Unfortunately, my newly found expert in fungi is leaving Brittany to return to the UK to live, so I won't have his expertise on hand for this Autumn's bounty.  Hopefully I can contact him with photographs by email and get his help that way.
 
As I came back round my field I found that six of my newest Light Sussex hens were perching under the old table - I can count - two of them had jumped down by the time I got the camera switched on again!  There are so many feathers on the ground it almost looks as if a fox attack has occurred, but it's just where they've been moulting.
