Summer trees and fungi

No films for me today so I was able to do my regular weekly patrol of the Water of Leith in Colinton and Craiglockart Dells. It's beautifully summery out there just now, this old silver birch tree looks wonderful in among all the buttercups in the 'Hidden Meadow'

and the hornbeams are displaying their wonderful chandeliers now


Meanwhile new fungi are emerging, it's easy to think of fungi as an autumnal phenomenon but there are fungi for most seasons, here's a giant puffball (the first I've noticed in this area)

Enjoying Summer for 30 Days Wild.

And for the Edinburgh based cinema goers out there, there's still time to book your tickets for the opening gala for Edinburgh International Film Festival. It's generally a great occasion and God's Own Country (which I review here) is certainly a great film. You can book here.

So beautiful! I enlarged that first photo to have a better look. Wish I could be in that spot right now.

Always love to see the trees! I need to see if we have hornbeam trees here. They look sort of like our beeches.
