Just thought I ought to mention it, as it had been suggested they were Common ink caps - don't think they are - the colour and texture looks wrong to me.
Shaggy Inkcaps are edible and very tasty and I didn't want the reference to 'ink cap' to cause confusion.
Welcome aboard Jay
I saw that on the DM website - typical DM tabloid scaremongering - whatever would they say about foxgloves, potato fruits, yew seeds etc\/
Interesting how rare they seem t think it is
The article also says it was 'found by a lighthouse' ............ jolly clever lighthouse is all I can say - perhaps it can help the next time I'm looking for something
Definitely not honeyfungus, and not ink cap either http://www.wildmushroomsonline.co.uk/Identifying-Edible-Mushrooms-The-Ink-Cap/index.php so DONT EAT IT!
Not sure what it is - would need much better photos and spore print to make an identification - but whatever it is it's doing no harm; it's helping to break down decaying organic matter in the soil and turning it into the nutritious soil that your plants need
It happens - learning to fly is a complicated and dangerous thing http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/second_norwich_cathedral_peregrine_falcon_chick_found_dead_1_3682445
Woody, I bet Tom Jones will be really good - I think the 'mature' version is much better than the earlier one Have a lovely time.
Good luck Clari!!!
Good luck KEF too - you'll find the most important thing with the concrete is to get it all done before the concrete 'goes off'' (technical term)
I find it better to wait until the spring. If you do use weed & feed in the summer you need to do it when the weather is going to be reliably overcast for a few days as otherwise the fertiliser can scorch the grass turning it brown.
You can of course water it in, but that will impact on the efficiency of the weed killer.
Seriously, the ants swarm in thundery weather because they use the rising thermals to fly high - sometimes thousands of feet into the air where the queens mate before drifting back to the ground well away from their original nest and start a new colony
You can sometimes see them being picked off by flocks of birds high up in the sky
I've always found that ants swarm in thundery weather - but maybe that's because we usually get thundery weather when ants swarm
