Yesterday's walk was fine between the showers.
The frost has taken the leaves off the hawthorn trees leaving the fruits even more conspicuous.
Berries are hanging heavily on the rowan trees too.
I was surprised to see a blackthorn bush still dripping with sloes. How had I missed this one? This year's sloe gin is already maturing in its jar, ready for bottling around Christmas.
All these berries were seen on the footpath to the open field.
On a fallen log there was a small crop of fungi (unidentified) and a second set on the roadside verge of Kings Barn Lane, near the sewage works.
