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.
