The old-wives tale says that if the trees are full of berries, it is a sign that a harsh winter will follow …………..

And,  as these photos show,  berries are far from plentiful  in the village.

However,  just a week or so ago,  the trees were heavy with  ‘fruit’;  the branches were bending beneath the weight of the plump, purple and red lusciousness.  And if the old-wives tale was to be believed,  we should be  ‘snowed-in’  from November to March.

 

But, already, the stalks have been stripped of their bounty.  The squirrels and birds have feasted on the  ‘mellow fruitfulness’  and there are not enough berries to make a  glass of Elderberry wine, let alone bottles of the delicious liqueur.

So, what is it to be ?  

Last week ……….  “Harsh Winter” ……………..

This week ………….” Mild Winter”………………..

I guess it all depends on when you look at the trees …………… oh ….. and how greedy the wild-life is ……………….
