Another Walk at Goring (September 2014) 29 September 2014

We went back to Goring on Sunday, and things had changed quite a bit since our walk in May. Images follow: cc-by-sa on everything.

The rosehips were plentiful, and ready to harvest.

The sloes were burgeoning (though the ones near ground level had been picked; it's good to see that someone other than us is picking fruit).

The Visiting Hound had enjoyed her swim. And the other swim. And the other other other other swim.

Haws were also around in huge numbers.

And there's a fine seven-trunked tree by the side of the path.

Flowering? This is autumn, you know, chaps. All right, there were occasional butterflies about too.

    There's plenty of stuff still in flower in my garden, but then my mum helped me choose stuff that will give flower somewhere for most of the year. The Fuscia is particularly splendid at the moment.

    I have a Queen Elizabeth rose against the house rear wall which is very sheltered. It is usually still in flower when I go to stay with my parents for Christmas, the blooms are gone when I get back in January. It starts flowering again in late March or early April and flowers all summer. I planted this rose in 1987 or 1988 when I first moved here, the other roses from then have all faded away but this one shows no signs of giving up.

    That tree with 7 trunks may have been coppiced a long time ago. Is there any sign of this on it, or other trees around?

    Nothing obvious, but that certainly seems plausible.
