This bramble is obviously an optimist. There's little chance of it producing any berries, but it's going for it anyway. And why not! There's far too much negativity going on in the world. We need all the positive thinkers we can muster.It's a quiet morning here in East Lothian, weather-wise. The clear, washed east coast skies are lovely, as always, and the dogs and I enjoyed a muddy walk around a couple of big fields. A very good start to the day.
