Under the Mistletoe

 

For today’s photo I had planned to capture some mistletoe. There was a beautiful bunch which I’ve walked passed for the last month or so I headed onto the Old Hills to find it. I was really disappointed to find that someone had cut away all the bits within reach.

 

Luckily the bunch at my back-up spot was intact and I was able to capture these shots.

 

 

In the Tree

 

I pass this old tree regularly when walking on the Old Hills. It’s amazing!

 

The main trunk is split down the middle, the centre is rotting and its hollow in places, yet in summer there is new growth on the upper branches and it’s leaves mingle with the others from the surrounding trees.

 

I’ve watched the fungi growing in the rotten, hollow trunk all this week and thought it was something worth sharing.  Nature’s ability to persist is fascinating.
