Now here’s something you don’t see every day – a Stinkhorn (Aseroe rubra). Allegedly extremely smelly, this one had no odour when I found it (though the dogs took a keen interest in it). It had all but shrivelled up by the following day.

The small tree or shrub in the left-hand-side foreground is a Dogwood (Jacksonia scoparia). It’s a member of the pea family (Fabaceae) and is full of small yellow flowers in the late Spring.
