Day In the Woods

Spent a day up the woods today with the two boys, practiced a few skills, fire lighting, cordage making, carving, also did some foraging for both foods and materials, ended up coming home with a good bag full of Cherry Plums, another good bag full of Hazelnuts and a further bag full of Cramp balls, (Daldinia concentrica, more info here on it's uses) we needed to collect a fair amount of Cramp balls for a couple of events we are attending where we will be demonstrating fire lighting using different techniques and materials, while we were searching out suitable fungi, we happened over the huge one pictured, not often you find one quite as large as this though, well not round here, think this one may get preserved somehow and used as a display piece when we go to shows.
