Enclave & Fungus

Fencepost of the Week #31

A mossy enclave, February 2011:

 ...and then in September with some additional colour:

This fungus is Calocera viscosa which loves long-dead coniferous timber. There is a similar fungus - Calocera cornea - which deals similarly with hardwood timber, but you rarely see that on fenceposts.

 I am moving to Brighton this weekend - I hope I will able to find some wonderful fenceposts in Sussex to continue this series, but I fear that fenceposts may only really flourish in the mild, damp west coast climate...
