Pictured below is what Michael and I found on our walk through the wood with Basil.

I’m not surprised that it is known to be one of the finest Bluebell woods in Yorkshire, they were amazing – Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta).




We came across some white ones that Michael managed to capture brilliantly.

Pale Bramble Rust (Kuehneola uredinis) on Rubus fruticosus stems -Michael’s photograph above and mine below.

Spores angular/ovoid and verrucose.

Bitter Chocolate Rust (Uromyces ficariae) on Lesser Celandine (Ranunculus ficaria).

Teliospores ovoid to irregular with a single apical pore.

A species of Xylaria, probably Candlesnuff Fungus (Xylaria hypoxylon) above and below.
