Following our visit to The Argory and Mount Stewart we stayed closer to home and enjoyed two afternoons wandering about the gardens and woodland of another National Trust location, Rowallane. We discover new hidden paths each time we visit and this time we discovered a foray of fungi! If only we knew how to identify each one we could give Rowallane a complete set of photos of all the stages of the fungi we found. The beauty of the colours around the lake, the range of mushrooms and fungi, the falling leaves and the formal garden make Rowallane an area to visit throughout the seasons. We hope the selection of photos we have chosen will let you share the colours of Autumn and the fruits of the forest.
One photo of many Purple Deceivers we found and photographed. They attracted our eye in the shadows with their bright colour. They are tiny and delicate and we couldn't resist stopping each time we saw them. It pays to walk or crawl beneath the trees as there are more hidden treasures which we will have to add to our photo gallery or this blog post would be too long.
