Blackthorn is the source

  And sloe gin is the final result!

The flowers are making a great show this week. I'm trying to make a mental map of the positions of all the blackthorn bushes on my local patch.

The sloes will swell through the summer but will not be ready until October. Then the sloe gin can be made and matured for Christmas.

I kept my 2010 vintage till February before starting on it but, sadly, it's already two thirds gone.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
