Signs of Autumn

The cool, damp weather of last week has brought out the mushrooms and I was lucky to find these on our walk last Sunday.  They were in a driveway to a holiday home nearby so picked them before anybody drove over them!  The ripe one was about 9 inches tall and dripping ink which stained my hands as I carried them carefully back up the hill.
These parasols were hiding in the long grass on top of the bank opposite our house.
I'm looking out for one of those red ones with white spots to draw next!
We picked our sloes for gin liqueur this week and of course I had to draw a sprig to use as the label later.
