No-one I'm aware of has commented yet on the oddity of an Islamist group having the same name as the Egyptian Mother Goddess so I'm going to.

In The Garden

Big kerfuffle just now: A bunch of crows mobbing a heron. Do crows have anything to fear from a heron? I wouldn't have thought so.

The raspberries are ripe. I started picking them yesterday. We have currants coming on- red and black (I picked a few). Also gooseberries.

One of the paths into the kitchen garden had become impassable. I cleared it this morning- and took two barrow loads of clippings to the compost heap.
