Early July and bilberries are in full swing. Sat on a plump cushion of moss, birds singing, water splashing down the waterfall. Perfecting the art of picking without dropping or squashing.
My blotchy fingers and purple lips – testimony to rigorous quality control. Summer days like this live forever.
If you are able to find them in gourmet stores fresh bilberries reach £20 per pound! But if you come on holiday at this time of year the mountainside is covered with them. More than enough for the goats, the birds and the rest of us.
