A couple of days ago I was walking home from the school run (don't get a chance to think on the way to school, let alone look around!) and I saw an amazing formation of fungus (is that the right phrase?) it was growing on the side of the stump of a tree which had been felled earlier in the year. It was beautiful, almost like someone had loosely laid some fabric down in folds. I made a note to myself to go back and photograph it so I could show you what I was talking about when I blogged it.
But when I went back - some mindless fool had destroyed it, it was in pieces all over the grass - perhaps kicked apart? I don't know, but what a terrible shame that someone can look at something created by nature, something beautiful, something useful and all they can think about is destroying it.
