Baslow 4/5

The tiny watchman’s hut on the bridge at Baslow (see yesterdays notes) still remains, no doubt reduced in size by the heightening of the road. At one time it offered a shelter of sorts to Mary Brady, a local beggar, who often slept rough inside.

 

Once again our Polyporus Squamosus fungus has come up on the rotting tree root in our garden but this time at the opposite end of the root meaning it is not quite so easy to get a reasonable shot of it. This is how it looks this year and this is how it looked in May, 2016 http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/image/2016/08/07/summer-fungus-2/

Two oddments grace your photoblog today, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed they do Ray.
with that doorway and round window, shelter would have been limited, i think. i confess i have nothing much to offer on the subject of fungus. i will look this up.
Brian Walbey: It has been there a very long time.
At least it offered some shelter for someone. It looks a bit like a dog house.
The fungus is a wonderful thing!
Brian Walbey: We thought it looked like a doghouse.

Baslow's hut looks a little wonky to me Martin, charming non the less
Brian Walbey: I guess its sunk a bit over the years.

What a delightful little structure. I especially like the fact that its not level and also the attempts at an arch in the main lintel.
Brian Walbey: I suspect it has sunk a bit over the years.
Fungus can be quite amazing Brian, as you show here. Nice story about the hut.
Brian Walbey: We didn't see this one until it was a bit past your prime.
It does look well weathered, lets hope it doesn't collapse as it does look a bit off level.
Brian Walbey: I guess it has sunk a bit over the years Martin.
Both shots are a delight to me. The sagging of the little hut is remarkable and I love fungus photography so much!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary.
At least she had a roof over her head! Great fungus!
Brian Walbey: A roof of sorts!

I would like to know more about Mary Brady.
Your fungus looks very impressive.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine.

How lovely that the fungus comes up each year.
Brian Walbey: It seems to Anne, although in the four years something has grown there have been three different species.
Never sen anything quite like it Brian

The fungus is a fine specimen
Brian Walbey: This is the third different type of fungus on that one rotting tree trunk.
