Blue Berries

View from Black Radley Hill where on Sunday we picked wimberries or whinberries?
Black Radley is in deepest Shropshire close to the Stiperstones Hill - you can see the wimberry wires (plants) to the front of the picture above

Close up of those dark blue berries that stain your fingers indigo blue as you pick them - and your tongue too!

Heather is just coming into bloom- the hills will soon be a blaze of colour as part of the English Heritage and Shropshire Wildlife (Back to Purple)project.

Looking towards the Welsh Hills - over the dark forest trees - clouds brewing up for a storm
