  • Had a walk round one of the local lochs today and found quite a lot of wild raspberries, small the size of peas but quite tasty.

      Wild strawberries are a bit of a weed in our boarders. I get rather conflicted scoffing the berries then yanking the plants out.
      I live in a part of the UK with very mild winters. Please take this into account before thinking "if he is sowing those now...."

        Some while back Mrs quanglewangle and I were walking with American friends above Aspen, Colorado in the summer. When we stopped for our picnic we started to eat some wild strawberries. The Americans rushed over screaming "Don't eat berries! YOU WILL DIE!"

                • Not seeing many butterflies up here this year, though some flowers and the buddleia are late flowering.

                            • Lovely photo, Mr Bones.

                              quanglewangle, I don't want to think about how you took that shot... Having rolled in the fast lane on the M6, pictures like that give me the wobbles.
                              Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

                              • ^^^^ from the closeness of the cars behind , the car looks stationary
                                ….aka road works or accident during peak tourist season in Cornwall perchance?

                                That was my initial thought though too .

                                It’s funny over here that we still have a right hand drive car but French registered and you can see confusion when other drivers see me sat on the wrong side!
