Hip

Better weather today meant that a walk was in order.  So, off we set for Shipley Lake and a complete circumnavigation if it.
The hedgerows are filling with fruits just now.  I have mentioned the Blackberries and Lords-and-Ladies, but there are also many others.  Pyracantha, Blackthorn (Sloes), Rowan, Snowberry, Buckthorn, Cotoneaster and Honeysuckle are joined by thousands of Ripening Rose Hips.  Plenty for the birds and small mammals to feast on.... as well as us in the case of the Blackberries!
