I've actually seen red on some of the maples here...maybe we're in for an early fall?
@pmurphy, I think it's a possibility, there have been a few theories out there regarding the reasons. The one which is quite interesting is that the lockdown has reduced pollution, causing increased ultra violet rays. I have no idea if that's true, but I've never seen my Shirasawanum's so colourful. Not complaining here !!!!
Our morning walk and the first Prunus spinosa blackthorn or sloe appearing amongst the hedgerows.
I believe harvest time will soon begin...
@pmurphy, I think your right P. My wife does enjoy Sloe gin at Christmas. Sorry for mentioning the C word in August !!!!!!
Just got back from the dog park where we found a pleasant surprise - the blackberries are ripening. We were unprepared so utilized what we had on hand...a spare doggie bag.
Amazing how many berries will fit into one of those bags :)
@pmurphy, so it's pie with cream tonight !! They look delicious P.
Actually tonight is homemade mini donuts with garden fresh raspberries....
I think these blackberries will be made into jam but when we return to the park on Wednesday we'll be taking a bucket to collect more.
@pmurphy, my mouth is watering already P.
Baby snapping turtle. In the driveway.
@Nik, that is the cutest thing posted today and probably for some considerable time. Smiles all round here N.
Took a wet walk in the dog park today and saw something I've never seen (or noticed) before....found a rose bush growing amongst the blackberries (which we were picking) that had what looked like balls of moss on it. Didn't see this on any other rose bushes.
(Sorry for the quality of the photos, shot on my husband's phone)
@pmurphy, good evening P. I'm not sure at all, but it looks like a sweet chestnut Castanea sativa.
Sorry if I've wasted your time.
The things on the rose are insect galls.
Of course it is !!!! Sorry P.
