Jude asked “Have you seen an unusual oranges?”

Yes, these are unusual, although the first wood fungus is quite common on my place.

Found this tiny fungi a few years ago and have not seen one since

One of my favourite ancient sites is Pompeii. Among the ruins is pieces of art that have remained intact since the fateful eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD 79. Take a bit of a scroll with me and have a poke around the houses and buildings of Pompeii.

Birds figured in a number of designs on the walls

Repeating patterns on many of the walls decorating the houses

Some included figures

Some fresco’s were colourful
