A quick walk out to see what fungi are still around.
|Left hand column: inverted form of a bracket fungus; candle snuff; deadman's fingers and puff balls.|
Right hand column: candle snuff; 'something else'; young velvet shank and hoof fungus.

What an enchanting little kirkyard! We hadn't intended to visit but came across it on the way to the National museum. The text below is taken from: http://www.historic-uk.com.

We didn't go in - but splendid views of the Castle and Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags - shame there wasn't a good geological interpretation board!
A day trip to Edinburgh. The Park and Ride at Straiton provided very easy access on the number 37/47 buses. Then we visited: the markets; the castle; the Francis Macdonald exhibition at the Scottish gallery; the Castle; Greyfriars Kirk and the National Museum of Scotland. A grand day out!

A lovely evening at the Ireby Christmas tree lights switch on. The Christmas Fair was well attended and as well as my stall, with Parton sea glass and crockery hearts, my good friend Janet Folland, has used Parton glass to make beautiful tea light holders.

A fabulous day - with a lovely light. Rocky and Steve enjoyed their round walk with spectacular views over Derwent Water!
