DAY 160 (12 SEPTEMBER) – Sloe (Prunus spinosa) (Farnham, UK)
Well this one was a dilemma. I’d assumed it was a plum, but I think the fruit is too small. So I’m going for a sloe (or blackthorn), even though I didn’t see any thorns… Unless it’s a damson?
This is another from nature’s collection behind the local library. It’s like entering a secret garden (yes, there is a special gate to go through which is locked after library hours). And at the end, around the corner, is an abandoned tennis court covered with moss.
I was intrigued by the red blobs oozing out in the first picture. And by the shrivelled fruit in the second.
