What a proper autumn we got this year! They call this a 'mast year'. All them trees has done so well, they got more beech nuts and berries and seeds and whatnot that they don't know what to do with 'em all, so they're shedding them on the ground. Everywhere you go there's hedgerows like treasure chests. We was out this afternoon and ooh, there's elderberries, hips and haws, all bright as jewels and the trees just turning amber. I reckon I could make a nice drop of elderberry wine and rosehip syrup this year, as well as me famous cordial. You have to leave plenty for the birds, mind, but this year there's more than enough to go round.

And there's something else you can do with them berries, too. Can't wait to decorate me hat.

Margaret, how did you come up with Corr's name?

Today it was cold outside. I need some warm cordial.

The animals should try pumpkin cookies with cinnamon in them for the fall. I hope everyone stays warm. I was cold today.
