Fruits Are Everywhere

We have noticed that this year, possibly thanks to the very wet August, fruiting bodies seem to be everywhere. Every time we slow down on the motorway we notice an apple tree, weighed down with large fruit. It's going to be a bumper crop of everything this year. Here are some examples we've spotted.

Conquers at Studley Royal Deer Park

We've seen a wide range of huge bracket funghi

Plump grapes in the glass house

Even the holly berries seem more numerous this year

So many varieties of apple and pear at Acorn Bank
