A bumper crop

This was one of my dads sure ways of predicting a harsh winter.That certainly was the case last autumn when i noticed the tree were full of berries especially the Rowan trees.

Again this year there seems to be a lot of this natures way of helping the animals stock up for a longer,colder winter or is it just that the conditions that have helped produce numerous berries have been followed by a cold winter simply because the weather can and often does follow a pattern.

I guess we shall just have to wait and see,but i for one will be getting ready just in case.
