Yes… all is not quite as it seems. This time of the year the hedgerows offer up colourful bounty. There is a variety of berries and even nuts to be collected or enjoyed as you walk along. But this is where caution is required. Today’s berries of choice look so inviting, don’t they? I mean… you can almost taste the sugary sweetness mixed with the lemony after-taste. Can’t you?
OK… I’m having a guess at how the berries may taste. If I were you I wouldn’t follow my advice to taste these berries. No, on the contrary, it would be much safer for you to leave these berries well alone as they are the fruit of the guelder-rose.
Ah well, as it is Monday again I hope all goes well for you this week… may the toxins in life pass you by!
