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?).




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 …


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.


Now there’s an idea! :slightly_smiling_face:

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