When we woke up this morning it wasn’t raining. We stayed in bed for a bit , watched Andrew Marr, a cartoon or two, and it still wasn’t raining. In fact, by midday, there was blue sky and sunshine.

There was only one thing we could do – go out!

We decided on a local walk up through the fields and around Craggy Wood.


We had armed ourselves with plastic bags because we knew we’d be passing a backthorn bush. We thought we were probably too late, but we found the bush still full of big fat juicy sloes.

Lots of sloes...

Lots of sloes...

Not wanting to be greedy, but I just had to get the ones higher up.

... but the best ones are always just out of reach.

The sloes are now in the freezer, waiting until I get a spare hour or two when I can add the all important ingredients of gin and sugar.
