Nature provide: edable mushroom Boletus in New Forest, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom

This was the best year for photographing mushrooms at the New Forest, Hampshire, UK. I came across the biggest Boletus I've ever seen in my life so far. This was just by the side of the parking lot so we got a shopping basket from the car and put it down to show the size of it as I think they must be the similar size around the world. Foraging is a great way to spend time in the forest and fresh air. Picking mushrooms is another way to meditate as you concentrate on the forest floor and connect with your surroundings. Do not pick any mushrooms you are not sure about, there is no reason to risk your health.

Rhododendron Leo F.C.C. and Rhododendron Kilimanjaro and other rhododendron at the Exbury Gardens, New Forest, UK

Rhododendron Kilimanjaro 10511 at the Exbury Gardens, New Forest. It's really hard to find names of the flowers at the gardens of different rhododendrons as there are so many different species, but they are working on that. This Rhododendron blew me away and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, it's the most amazing color I tried to capture the colour of the flower as much as I could in a photograph.
