On Tuesday morning, 10 November, 2015, we were delighted that 37 people gathered for the RSHG Fungi Walk at Ryde Cemetery.


The conservation area in Ryde Cemetery is looking very colourful now that Autumn is here with leaves and berries of all colours and textures.


Winter may not be over just yet but we've just had a couple of cold but sunny days and a walk in the cemetery revealed that Spring is just around the corner.


And Spring arose on the garden fair, Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere; And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.


Hypericum perforatum, also known as St John's Wort, is a flowering plant species of the genus Hypericum and a medicinal herb that is sold over-the-counter as a treatment for depression.
