... also known as the warted puffball, the gem studded puffball or the devils snuff box. Today is All Souls, better known as Halloween which now seems to celebrate all things unearthly, these funghi would seem to fit the bill.
We were scheduled to be going to Winchester today to the monthly food market and to meet up with friends for a pub lunch but have cancelled as torrential rain is forecast, from 7am.
The clocks went back an hour last night.
