It was a warm day today, perfect for a walk and what a treat it was to see such an abundance of fruits in the hedgerows. There are still loads of blackberries although they are not all they seem, some have been spoiled by the rain. I picked some on Friday evening and probably have enough in the freezer for my purposes. It does seem a shame not to pick them, but I just don't have enough time to preserve them.
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!
