This Sunday it's , so to celebrate we thought we would share a selection of our favourite Russula (Brittlegill). Over 160 species in the UK, some are common, some rare, but all colourful and beautiful. Here are 16 species that grow close to us.

hi Scott, we have just noted 31 ringed gulls at Windermere, can you follow us back so we can DM the details? Also one white darvic bh gull 8MW, can't seem to trace that.

It's only took us a month but we've finally planted up our stump with ferns and put it in the shady void

It's so we have been exploring the moths in our garden, here are some of the commonest and most beautiful we have had. Over the years we have had more than 500 species visit our small garden & dare I say it, they are better than butterflies....

Walter Shrimpton popped into the garden today, he looked shocked at how messy it currently is. Don't worry Walter, we're working on it. This stunning Calceolaria 'Walter Shrimpton' aka Lady's Slipper has emerged & I couldn't be happier. So much character for such a little plant.

On a rainy day like today, one of us likes to design and create beautiful botanical posters, and the other likes to use power-tools and build nest-boxes. But which of us does what?

A Harvest Mouse taking refuge from the high tide at today. Amazing to see so many small mammals especially this little guy who swam up to the wall and up to where we were sitting.

It was great in Fuerteventura when we went - that whole region is great for plants - enjoy!

Some of the Crane's-bills and Stork's-bills found near to our house. They are one of our most favourite families of plants so we put together a little sheet of them (not all species are included). We already have 3 in flower this year!

Keeping 's handy little Violas guide on my phone is ideal for random walks in the countryside. This was one of a bank of Sweet Violets flowering on the edge of my village at the weekend.
