A Day of Surprises

I went for a walk with my grandson, Wills, this morning to take all our bottles to the recycling bank and he spotted this amazing bracker fungus on a tree in the village.  I only had my phone with me but took this picture.  It is really large and so rich and velvety and seems to have a whole range of creatures living under the shelter of it.
Then getting the washing in this afternoon I spotted this incredible moth, it showed flashes of orange/buff as it flew away and I believe it was a Lesser Yellow Underwing (Noctua comes) but I'm happy to be corrected on that.
On a non-nature note I had a wonderful surprise today when my daughter, Sara, and smaller grandson, Sam, arrived here to go out to lunch, with my big boy, David, in their car.  Wow, smiles and hugs and tears, it was so great.  He's up from London for a few days and wanted to surprise me, he certainly did that, I was a very happy Mummy.
Lunch at Townley's in East Kirkby (good, home-cooked meals and a fantastic on-site butcher).
David with his nephews.
