So what did we find? Well, along the Woodchester valley there were plantain rearing their leaves, tree buds ripening and daphnes, hellebores and various mushrooms. Our favourite of which today was turkey tail. Yes, good old trametes versicolor was abundant on a few logs in its velvety glory. This will be dried and then added to broths in a traditional manner for extra immune support.
The youngest member of the group spotted it and was lovely to see how it had spread along the log. We picked some and now …. to cleaning it up… good night!
