Late Fruit

Not many people go blackberrying at the end of October.

But it's been a good year for wild soft fruit. And there's plenty here still. These are in the woods so subject to different conditions to those out in the open. Here in most years the blackberries are few and poor quality. It doesn't help being close to the road; some are particular about picking where car fumes may have had an effect.

There's still some hope that a new flush of cowberry/mountain cranberry may appear before Christmas. There have been new flowers over several weeks.
