I wonder if the bushes being heavily berried means a cold winter?


I hoped you would show us a photo of your boys in the play! Mine were never into much theater, except my middle daughter, who worked backstage in the school dramas.

Judy: I was hoping someone might identify the berries or fruits. I don't know about the winter. We are having a sort of Indian summer just now.
How I wish I had photos of the boys in their Little Lord Fauntleroy suits.

Not sure Pat, but the 'berries' look as if they might be crabapples. Also, that old saying that a good crop of berries means a hard winter to follow seems to me to work out about fifty per cent of the time, which means it's pretty useless as a weather indicator.
Regards, Mike.

When I was a tot, my mother took me along to dance classes. And at the tender age of 4, dressed up in a little soldier's uniform, I performed on the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-sea, Sussex.

The family tale goes that at the end I took my little bow and was applauded, at which point I bowed again, to more applause, then kept bowing and wouldn't come off. Eventually my mother had to come on stage and physically drag me off.

I think she dragged me off too early - I've been seeking the applause ever since...

BEAUTIFUL Berries! I wonder if they taste good, too! (lol)

Crab apples, lovely. You should have pinched some to make jelly (I'm not struck on pork myself so I have it with Cheshire cheese: very nice!)

Mike and Anne: the weather this year is a perpetual mystery. Indian summer ust now.

Kim:I remember the theatre at Bexhill and fancy The Penguins started there. Was that the end of your theatrical career? What the world has lost!

Naomi: I wouldn't like to risk eating them. At best I think they would be tart as hell.

Kevin: I should think it would be good with lamb too.
