As I am away, you can walk through the Mount Congreve gardens all by yourself. These pictures were taken in early September.
Ancient tree with an ancient Hoof fungus on it.
It is what a Rhododendron leaf looks like after a year on the forest floor.
These steps take you under the thick canopy where the sun doesn’t shine and some mysterious, alien-looking things are growing.
Strikingly beautiful plant with scarlet leaves is literally glowing in the dark. It is a Bromelia with a beautiful name Fascicularia bicolor.
The ‘thing’ in the middle is the flower itself, or rather, a flower head which consists of many small flowers.
Another alien thing. You will love the name – White Elfin Saddle.
Well, this is too much of scary :). I advise you to click on the picture to enlarge it. It looks like this Hoof mushroom has lips!
I think you have to get out of this dark corner ASAP.
Hope this walk was not boring. Next week you will walk through the rest of the garden.
Have a wonderful weekend!
