早秋的Exbury Gardens

上几个星期,我们又和邻居去了附近的Exbury Gardens。我的邻居Nigel Barker爱好摄影,捕捉了早秋美景。(以上四图都是他拍的。)

英国人从小就和大自然的花花草草打交道,不用看书,不上大学,也可以随口念出一些花草的名字,常令我惊叹,也常让我觉得自己的常识太贫乏。Nigel说,这些绣球花,俗称lacecap,是绣球花中比较优雅的花种。

走着走着,看到了满地的蘑菇。他们大叫Fly Agaric! 就是那艳红缀上白斑的毒蘑菇。英国的野地蘑菇很多,大多数有毒,纵使美艳,也不能乱碰。我们家后院就经常会长蘑菇。家里的男人常说:If in doubt, do not touch! (如果不确定蘑菇是否有毒,就千万别乱碰!)
