Bumper crop

This year has been a very good year for blackberries up our way. The Memsahib has decided to have a go at blackberry infused Gin, (seeing as we can't find any Sloes in our hedgerows).  We have also been eating more than our fair share of blackberry  and apple crumble, pie and any other pus you can put blackberries in. There is (in my mind anyway) something strangly ironic about the fact that in the very year that Blackberry, the electronics company are having a bad one and laying of part of the workforce the humble blackberry (hedgerow fruit) is having a cracker of a year. Just an observation :-)

First nip

Today the air had the first nip of Autumn in it. You could just about see your breath and hands were kept firmly in jacket pockets, jacket remained done up for the entire walk. The dogs didn't seem to mind though.
