This living sculpture appeared in the garden overnight. There are two of them, each about 18 inches high and growing 50 yards apart. It’s a mushroom but I don’t know what type or whether it’s edible. It has grown from the soil and doesn’t seem to be attached to any root system or decaying timber. Funnily enough, just as I was wondering what it was a letter appeared in Country Life with a photo of a very similar one asking the same question. If anyone knows, please enlighten me.
The idea of Slow Life is to take the principles of Slow Food, which are “good, clean and fair”, and extend them to life in general.
Here in the Lake District, the air is clean, the pace is slow and the atmosphere is calm. If we don’t grow food ourselves, we can buy it in friendly small shops, where you know the quality is going to be the best.
This blog is a celebration of the Slow Life, with forays into the world of design, music, the arts, gardens, and my particular weakness, Japan.
