I had the most wonderful Autumn Adventure on Sunday. The hedgerows were bursting full of autumn's jewels, including some of the biggest hawthorn berries I've ever seen:

And beautiful elderberries:

Although most of the latter had been pretty well picked over by the likes of this fearless fellow:

And then there was were my favourite autumn jewels: blackberries:

I love autumn, it's my favourite season, and blackberries are one of the reasons why. I love eating them, and I love blackberrying. It's a ritual which spins me through time to all my other blackberrying adventures. I wear the vicious thorn scratches with pride — I earn my berries, dammit! Despite the Law of Blackberrying, which states that the best berries are always just out of reach, I still came home with loads, and to celebrate, made myself this:

Blackberries and pancakes, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon and dark chocolate flakes. #AutumnBliss.
