10th October Field watch

Once upon a time there ware these ordinary lives in the village. Like this would I look back the past from the future?
Who knows two or three decades from now it will happen that these 'not special' flora, in other words, just simple weeds/trees, butterflies and mushrooms do not exist anymore. Hereunder I upload things in row that I took pictures during a coupple of hours walk on 10th October 2016.
[note 1]

161006 A1
Self-heal ウツボグサ Gewone brunel (Prunella vulgaris)
Brown dead plant after blooming, now new green leaves. They stay maybe as it is if coming winter is too warm.

Spindle セイヨウニシキギWilde Kardinaalsmus (Euonymus europaeus)
Very noticeable because of such attractive colors of fruits and leaves. Everywhere seedings. Why Spindle? Spidle for spining for textile was made by this wood. Kardinaalsmus in Dutch: Likened the red and orange of the fruit to the hat of Roman Catholic Cardinal. Japanese spindle ニシキギ(E. alatus) is also very popular in garden, used for flexible bow.

161006 A2
Birch boleteヤマイグチ Gewone berkenboleet (Leccinum scabrum
possible; other 'birch bolete' species.

or Calvatia (=Langermania) = ノウタケ属 such as Giant puffball

161006 A11
Horse-chestnut セイヨウトチノキ Paardenkastanje(Aesculus hippocastanum)
White layer protects brown fruit. It is still soft and elegant. My 10 years old chestnut tree has made a dozen pieces of fruit in this autumn.

161006 A14
Trees of a row as the background are the birch. This also looks like a birch mushroom. Which species is it?
Another big one in front may be kicked by someone, it remains only split stem.

161006 A13
Probably Common sweet violet ニオイスミレ Maartsvioortje (Viola odorata)
Along back-corridor wall it grows many of these plants. No sun all day long.

161006 A15
Left; Wild teasel オニナベナ grote kaardebol(Dipsacus fullonum)
Right; St. Benedict's herb ダイコンソウgele nagelkruid (Geum urbanum). Can both weeds stay as it is in coming winter at corner of my back house?

Sweet chestnut ヨーロッパグリ Tamme kastanje (Castanea sativa)
This tree was planted a decade ago in front of my house. There are a plenty of fresh fruits,that are falling down. As Japanese proverb "Peach& Chestnut three years, Kaki (persimmon) eight years ", it was not so fast to make first fruits. The fruits appeared about three years ago.
Twice pinnate compound leaves of Udoウド (Aralia cordata)
Japanese word Udo seems a shrub as you see. Very known as "wild or mountain asparagus". Udo belongs to in fact grass plant as well as asparagus. Tara-no-ki タラノキ (Aralia elata) is no doubt tree, These Aralias are considered Two great heroes of the mountain-vegetable.
There are two types of Udo; green & white on the market. The white has been cultivated in underground room since Heian-period (about 10 century) It is said ''cultivated for Mikado = Kaiser in Kyoto. In 21 centuries there are some production places, for example, Tachikawa near Tokyo and Nagano prefecture. In Europa Norway and the Netherland as long as I certainly know. This image is taken, of course, here my village in the Netetherlands. .

A female Zanthoxylum tree with big thorns
サンショウ=Sansho: known as Japanese paper (Zanthoxylum piperitum), one of most favourite condiment in Japanese kitchen. There are many species within genus Zanthoxylum In the Northern Hemisphere. The male and female trees are in separate individuals. You need both trees and have to plant closely together. This image is taken 10 meters far away from that Udo.

Yasuda Hartige taart 01

I found this inside my freezer. Nothing to do things that I watched outside on 10th October. This kind of cake is called ''Hartige taart'' in Dutch, maybe ''Savoriness cake'' in English. Thaw naturally 1 hour. A best bites after such walk!

1. I have had three light equipments with me for just walk, without backpack. Right; Correct time and date, showing 10:10 and 10th October.. Left; 5 minutes faster than right-one, although both smartphones are same 4S. Left one is available for only Japanese area, probably 5 minutes difference on the same day (10th October) between Here and Japan! This black one takes quick general pictures as a reserve camera.
The Pentax compact degital camera has same square of smartphone in plan view. it can take 1cm closeup and rather far distance terephoto. However it is not always sharp-focus at all to make reasonable images.

symple toestel
The article in paper is about new apple moter ''iOS'', available from 5S.
