Changing times

Ripe Sloes the fruit of the Blackthorn Tree
In the last days of August the natural signs that the seasons will soon be changing are apparent as you walk in the countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds. On our walk yesterday from Nunburnholme we noted ripe Sloes, Damsons, Elderberries and many other fruits ready to fall from the tree. It was also noticeable that the trees and bushes now their work is done for another year are starting to sag as if their energy is spent. Which, I suppose it is.
