365 Day 238 - Autumn is on its way

We are starting to see signs of autumn creeping up on us, blackberries (or brambles as we would have called them), the leaves are starting to tinge, the conkers are still on the trees but getting bigger, I even saw a line of swallows sitting on a wire thinking about flying! This is one of the other signs of autumn for me, not sure what they are called and usually when I spot them they are broken and half eaten so I couldn't resist this little group.

They are the fruits (poisonous) of the Lords & Ladies plant, aka Cuckoo Pint (Arum maculatum).

Thanks Karen,
I've got two (yes, two and they're a long way apart!) of those between the nettles, the ivy and knee deep grass in my garden.
I'd wondered what they were.
