What's outside

Mynydd yr Olewydd (Mount of Olives), Jeriwsalem, from our balcony this evening. The tower is that of the Russian Orthodox Church of the Ascension; marking the spot where, according to the Orthodox tradition, Jesus ascended to Heaven 40 days after his resurrection (perhaps in order to learn Welsh from the angels?).

Eira!

Not getting about for much interesting photography these days but still trying.



ffwng clust tyfu ar arwydd Chinese - jews ear fungus growing on Chinese sign
(a variation on take away!).


Eirlys - snow drops (spring approaches).

Cheers J.P.

Well spotted, that ffwng clust, J.P.! :slightly_smiling_face:
Set me wondering whether it was already growing in the wood/plywood when the sign was made or just deterioration of the paint had allowed the spores to establish themselves - no way of knowing, I guess …


#4073

Could they have been using it as an ingredient and had some spores on their hands when they made the sign? After all, it is edible.

Crocws or the rather lovely name Canhwyllau Mair, which refers to its candle like appearance.

Yn yr ardd - Ysgwydd Amryliw neu Ysgwydd Cynffon Twrci.


#4078

That’s beautiful! But why is it “shoulder”? (colorful shoulder? turkey-tail shoulder?) I’m sure I’m missing some nuance, but please help me out.


#4079

Because although ysgwydd is ‘shoulder’, in an architectural sense it also means ‘bracket’ :slight_smile:


#4080

Thank you! I couldn’t make sense of it, but ‘bracket’ I am familiar with. Thanks again!
