A natural history and gardening blog based on our garden in Pensby, Wirral, Cheshire, but with very occasional excursions farther afield.

Many of the lower orders of fungi are so minute as to be scarcely visible with the naked eye. But there are members of one of the lower orders that are often seen - the Myxomycetes, commonly referred to as Slime Moulds. This is the slime mould Lycogale terrestre on a rotting log in the wild part of the garden. It is about 1cm across.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
