I sat outside with a mug of tea in my jammies and dressing gown and contemplated life, the universe and everything...... but mainly the glint of red beneath some leaves on the far side of the garden.
Reader, I could not believe it - the blackbirds had left me some redcurrants!
Straight after breakfast, out I went with a couple of bowls and harvested my soft fruit.
Feast your eyes on the gorgeousness!!!!
Redcurrants and gooseberries!
I don't know whether to eat them or wear them in my ears!
And look what a blackbird poo has brought us - raspberries
It's worth letting him have the blueberries!
Of course, you realise what this means, don't you?
I'll be making JAM.
Verily, abandon all faith, ye who enter that particular blog post when it happens.....
