Early signs of late summer



This is a not very good photo of some hawberries. I took it last night when cutting some branches off a hedge on the allotment site for the goats to browse. The important point about it is that the haws are already ripening. This is not something I would expect to see until late summer. It seems the mild winter and the early start to spring has moved everything forward a few weeks.

It sounds weird, but I enjoy those early signs. Sometimes the best part of summer are the days when we know it is fleeting.
