8 October: Autumn is here

It seems to be a good year for berries - the blackberries were plentiful, and rowans and elders have been loaded, and the hedges look bloodstained with hips and haws.

The hips above and the haws below may provide food for birds over the coming weeks - they have eaten most of the rowan berries already.

And, just in case anyone was needing a picture of some knitting, here's a pair of mittens finished in the last few days. The wool is hand-spun and hand-dyed, and the 2-colour pattern is Faroese.

Thanks to z and Murph for your comments about Statcounters. On the whole, I don't think I need one for the time being.

I just LOVE red rose hips and hawthorn berries. Pity the weather's been so awful, so that, even though they look so fabulous at present it's been a struggle to get out there and look. Great photos.

Do reconsider about the statcounter.

How else would I know that someone came to ny blog looking for 'Corrie erotica' this morning.

Thanks - my little digital camera does good close-ups, but landscapes are usually rubbish (even on "mountain" setting).

Statcounter - I even want to know that somebody out there is looking for "Corrie erotica"?

Mmmm. Hilda Ogden in the shower. There could be a market!

Nice berry pics. Mr P's Mum had a wonderful crop of grapes which were suddenly eaten by Blackbirds in the course of a couple of days last week.
