Things I saw in the woods today, part 83

Bramble flowers. In 6 to 8 weeks, these will turn to delectable, ripe blackberries....There is a secret place in the woods where serious jam makers gather every year at dawn to pluck the ripe berries. They are waiting patiently...

The summer started on 21st June but look at this horse chestnut leaf, it has already begun preparing for the Autumn. There is an inherent cycle in nature that is in spite of everything else. The process of decay has begun and this tree is preparing to shed its leaves.

And finally, a pretty symmetrical yellow flower, smiling cheerily at the world.
