A few days ago I was challenged by Darla M Sands to post Eight Photos of Happiness! A couple of hours ago I walked alongside a hedge and it was the happiest hedge I've ever seen. So much so that I took loads of pictures and I really couldn't whittle them down to just eight - sorry Darla! I got loads of blackberries and sloes so I'm happy too.
Please excuse the quality - I didn't have my camera and had to make do with my phone.
...and then along came the enemy!
