Still Time

As predicted at the end of October, the late flowers of Cowberry/Lingonberry/Mountain Cranberry (different names for the same thing) have given rise to some even later fruit. If you didn't make your preserve weeks ago, didn't put any away in the freezer and haven't put in an order from IKEA, there may still be time to get out on the moor and pick some fruit ready for boxing day.

It's more symbolic than satisfying as the amount of dead material around makes the business of sorting the red berries from everything else a labour of love.
