It was a bright, dry morning this morning, but windy. Anyway, as we’ve had so few dry days recently I decided it was time to get out, and so I headed up into the hills.
From Cefn Cyfarwydd I had a great view down to Llyn Crafnant nestled in the hills of the Carneddau. It’s a wonderful view so it’s a shame the weather is so poor again.
By the time I’d got up here the cloud kept rolling down the hills and the rain kept coming too. So I headed down to Llyn Crafnant, hoping to find Blackberries.
Well I found Blackberries, but they weren’t black! Unfortunately I doubt if they will ripen now, and it just goes to show what a horrible, dull, wet summer we’ve had.
I looked for Rowan berries too, but they just aren’t there! These trees should be full of berries now, Rowan trees look scarlet at this time of year because they are so full of berries. These two had just a few small ones.
It’s going to be a hard winter for wildlife and foragers.
This photo is here just because I liked the bright red standing out in a drab, dying hedgerow.
I’m not sure what this fungus is called, but I was always told to leave bright red ones alone, so I did!
It wasn’t the most pleasant day to be out. The wind was stronger than ever up in the hills and the rain was coming and going all the time, so after about three hours I decided it was time to head home, empty handed!
