The hedgerows are also full of haws on the hawthorn hedges and, for the first time for many years, we have some beautiful rose hips. The pictures were so vibrant, I was inspired to do a digital layout!

Warm September brings the fruit
sportsmen then begin to shoot..
Well this warm September has certainly brought the fruit to the hedgerows. We have more brambles (blackberries) than I've ever seen and many of them are huge! There are also rowan berries in this photo and, although not shown, more rose hips than I've seen for a long time.
I'm fortunate that we have two roads into our farm and each has a hedgerows full of fruit. I spied these when I was taking the bins down to the end of the road to be emptied tomorrow, one of the less attractive aspects of rural living.
Muffins are very easy to make, one bowl of wet ingredients another of dry ingredients, gently mix together and add in whatever is seasonal. These are based on a Blueberry Muffin recipe substituting the brambles for the blueberries.
