  1. What are the fruits or berries in the first picture? Crabapples? Rosehips?

  2. You've got some nice trees and bushes in your area. Please keep working on the verse. I'm looking forward to reading it.

    I genuinely do wish that I had - somewhere along the way - managed to absorb the information that lets some people stride about the country going, 'ah, the lesser-spotted widget in that branch of the thingummy tree'; but, for some reason, I just haven't. There are about three trees I can name with any sort of confidence; ditto birds; ditto plants. I often form the resolution to try and dispel my lamentable ignorance about this stuff (i.e, the world) but - and this in common with most of the resolutions I make - I just never seem to get round to doing it.

    That being said, I don't think that those berries are rose-hips. Vauge memories do surface for me of stripping rose-hips as a kid (to make itching powder out of the furry insides) and, remembering those, I think they were fatter and more elongated than these (and these berries were on a tree, anyway, rather than the straggly kind of bush I remember attacking as a kid).
