I am hoping some of my more knowledgeable blogger colleagues may be able to supply a name for this fungi. I saw it as I was walking along a bush track and at first sight thought it was a flower. It's rather beautiful I think.The weather continues to be very windy with rain and showers every day. Today is the 18th day since we've had a totally fine day. I've tried to go out and watch the birds and take some photos on a few days but have always ended up clutching my camera under my coat and scurrying back to the car. This was Inskip Point just before another heavy shower came through.The sea has been very rough and unfortunately someone was caught in a rip close to here just the other day. These boys were swimming right below the surf patrol at Rainbow Beach so they should be safe - but it's certainly not my idea of a pleasant swim in the sea!
