A Bit Of Fungus

As I walked out to get the mail one day last week I spied a Ulysses Butterfly flitting around one of my orange Ixorias.  So I went inside and got the camera to try and get a photo.  Of course, by the time I got back out the butterfly had taken off.  I then spied these fungi in the garden and thought they would make great photos.

***Edit...been googling apparently this is Crepe Ginger.

This is a flower on, I think, a ginger plant that has come up since we have removed the bamboo.

Well that is another week done and dusted.  I wish you all a good weekend whatever your plans.  For me I am planning on some gardening as the morning are a touch cooler these days.  Then see what the days bring. :-)


  1. They are beautiful pictures of the fungi you have managed to capture.
    I have shown the making of your wine tote on my blog if interested.
    Raining too much here to get out in the garden. It is so wet damp and dismal.
    Hugs Mrs A.

  2. The sound of a gardening weekend sounds so perfect Merry, sadly we would need a boat and winter coat to do it here despite it apparently being Spring.

    So your photos bring even more enjoyment.


  3. There's a fungus among us!!!

    LOL I love them, so cool the things that nature creates, isn't it?

    Have a terrific weekend, Merry!

  4. Love the fungi ,our gardens throw up some interesting stuff.A combination of the wind and the birds seems to have brought lots of new plants to my garden .Just trying to get my mojo back after losing everything on the computer ,I guess I should do a backup on a regular basis .

    Have a great weekend and thanks for popping by my blog.

  5. Oh Merry....I have never seen fungus like the one in your first is beautiful! We have the same on as in the second photo here in Canada BUT that first one is stunning.
    Thanks for sharing.
