A Rainy Day Wander

Once upon a time a dull, rainy day would have kept me indoors. Nowadays, no matter what the weather is like, I’ll be out and about on the local lanes. Day 90 of 365 Days Wild was, unfortunately, yet another of the dull, rainy days that we seem to have been having a lot of lately. The light wasn’t good enough for any particularly interesting pictures, but I did spot a few things along the way that caught my attention.

This old gate, that leads onto a small area of allotments, particularly caught my eye. I love lichen and can find it just as fascinating as flowers to look at.

The hegerows were also filled with tangles of wild hops.

I didn’t intend to spend my time on another fungi hunt so soon after yesterday’s, but they really didn’t need to be hunted for in order to be found. Every few steps along my way I spotted more of them growing on the grass verges.

To finish, here’s a picture of a snail that I spotted on some dead wood on the verge just before I reached home.

That’s all for now.

Have you spotted anything interesting around your way? I’d love to know. Just leave a comment below.

  1. i feel the weather not only affects our mood, it also affects our view. the light changes the perspective. an area you have walked past before and never gave a look, now captures your attention. this is the reason i revisit many places. different time of day, different time of year. different type of weather. different mood. all can give you a different view of the world.


  2. I ate far too many hazel nuts this morning. It always takes me back to childhood as I used to eat them on the way home from the bus stop (1.5 miles bike ride)
