Early fruits


Earlier in July I noticed a couple of comments on social media about the ripeness of blackberries which indeed mirrored what I was seeing near me. But it not just the blackberries...


By the end of the month, and without even trying, I've found a handful of different fruits, namely raspberries, elderberries, hawthorn and sloes all ripe. The only notable absentee (that I will admit to proactively looking for) is cherries but this year the crop has been pretty non-existent. Couple of cheeky wild strawberries too!

Bizarrely I also stumbled across some elderflowers! How is the fruit near you?
