By their fruit
Last time I looked out of the kitchen window -- really looked, rather than just letting my eyes slide glassily over the scene -- our elderberry trees were heavy with fruit.

Standing at the window just now, I saw that the branches were nearly bare: just a few black and shrivelled clumps remained.

Some time in the last month all the fruit withered and died while I wasn't looking.

Current Mood: autumnal

Maybe somebody came and picked them for making wine?
Or it could have been those bastard starlings.

We picked them for making wine last year, but didn't bother this year. Don't mind leaving them for the birds but I hope the sparrows got some of them.
