Hubby and I made the most of the Spring like weather yesterday and went for a walk around the farm. Down by one of the streams is a dark, boggy area, with lots of dead, moss covered trees - to my delight we came across an area covered in this beautiful fungi (Scarlet Elf Cup).
I've only ever seen it once before (Snowdrop Valley, Somerset), so to say I was thrilled is an understatement!
Each 'cup' is about one inch (2.5cm) across
