Its been hot and sticky here today and I don't do hot and I don't do cold. . I have been very headachey today as well as the arthritis playing up quite severely today. Because it is too warm in the house I have been wandering round the gaden and ventured down to the jungle at the bottom of the garden this evening and found some ripe blackberries. They are not set plants, but ones that have sowed themselves. So I think the start of autumn may be nearer than we think. I know that there would appear to be a lot of fruit sets on the plants. So I have picked what few there are to put up until I have a few more. If we are lucky and I manage to find some more wild fruits might make a summer/autumn pudding later in the week with some of the fruits I have already acquired. So it might be worth keeping your eyes open, just in case there are some coming through in the wild, although I think we may be a little while yet from what I saw yesterday, but you never know. Nature has her own time-table and we all dance to her tune.
