I've had a relaxing couple of hours over in my neighbours garden this morning. Not sat out in the sun putting the world to rights as we sometimes do, but this time it was all about fruit picking.
Mary had invited me over to pick some of the fruit left on her bushes after she had had a picking session, rather me having it than the birds she said .... although there are masses of berries that neither of us could hope to reach still waiting to feed the wildlife.
Her garden is lush and mature and the fruit bushes are laden down with fruit this year. The rainy weather and occasional sunshine seems to suit them down to the ground.
After starting with Redcurrants and then moving on to the Blackcurrants, I finally finished off by donning gloves and wading into the Gooseberry bushes. Two hours picking gave me all of the above fruit ... now I just have to decide what to make with it.
