Sure enough there were fresh honeysuckle flowers, smelling sweetly of June!
In amongst the flowers were ripe, juicy blackberries - usually, of course, the shared thicket produces only one of these treats at a time ... but this year there are some very strange bedfellows to be found!
According to country lore, this is the last day you should pick and eat blackberries - because on Michaelmas night the Devil spits on them and turns them bitter! So make the most of it - I just have and they were delicious!
Blackberries and ice cream for supper tonight, I think, too!
