Foraging is exciting, and lots of goodies there are for the picking.
But some, though beautiful are not for the taking.
Black Bryony, a real no no...
Honeysuckle, to be treated with more caution than I am prepared to worry about.
There are many more berries to avoid, but these are the two I photographed this afternoon.
These little beauties are in short supply this year...sloes
The ones I have managed to find are now in a large pan of mixed hedgerow cordial.
Hubby is out on his skittle evening, and I have retired to bed extra early. I feel quite weary if truth be told. Youngest has been signed off work with stress for two weeks as of this afternoon. She really has been in a very stressful situation for the last few months with a very unsettled resident and it has escalated in the last few weeks to beyond her breaking point. All I can do is give hugs and support and trust the medication prescribed by the doctor will do her much good.
Tomorrow I have an extra early start as I need to be in Exeter. I'll not be happy leaving my baby by herself but unfortunately needs must. Heidi will keep her in good company I'm sure.
The other day I changed my header picture and Sue has mentioned that my blog no longer fitted width ways...I hope I have remedied this.
