These were my black currant bushes two days ago. I like to pick a handful to put in my oatmeal for breakfast. I didn't pick any yesterday, as it was pouring rain in the morning. So this morning I went out, and disturbed a blackbird amongst the foliage. I looked at my bushes, and there was not one currant left!! The birds have eaten every single one.
Hmmm.. the gooseberries are still there, I wonder how they taste in oatmeal? I'll pick a handful and see :)
