Ferns and Fungi

A short distance from our new house, there is a four hour trail through the trees.

Filled with NZ native plants, ferns and fungi, it feels like stepping out of this world and into some prehistoric jungle – but with footpaths.

You might think it would get old.

It is dazzlingly beautiful; it will never get old.

(Also, happy coincidence that Faye was wearing her fungi bloomers and I finally got a photo of her that wasn’t a blur. You can find out more about her bloomers, Aggie the toadstool elf that inspired them, and so much more, if you follow me on Instagram @eight_turns_to_winter. I would love to have you come visit x).
