Ready!

Now is the time to go and pick blackberries for your jellies and pies and crumbles.
  
 
 
Elder berries are also nicely black now but the birds will soon gobble them up.  If you want to make wine or jelly with them hurry up.
 
 
Other signs of autumn approaching: 
 
two-tone leaves on the Dogwood,
 
a green-veined white butterfly
on one of the last scabious flowers
 
Flowers of Old Man's Beard going over and soon to pop open and produce the fluff that gives the plant its name.
