Yellow slime mold.

Occasionally, I spot something in the park that  I have never seen below. The photos below were snapped in the orchard area, next to the wood chipping mulch pile. iNaturalist tells me it is from the Genus Fuligo, and is probably the delightfully named “Dog Vomit Slime Mold”. With the frequent recent showers, I expect to see a lot more of this sort of thing in the next month or so.

Another (unrelated) snippet of information. In the same orchard area, from the planting five years ago, a total of 12 Stipa Gigantea grasses are now reaching maturity, many being  >2m tall now. Hopefully they will continue to prosper into the future.
