Blackberries!

My daddy goes bonkers over blackberries. Every time the season approaches he becomes more alert to the ever ripening of the little berries. When we lived on the west coast we discovered that blackberries were like giants compared to their east coast cousins. This proved to be the best part of living there. Anytime, one could find blackberries growing in every crack or crevice. So, the other day in the park Jim found some bushes on the path up the hill from the parking lot and inside the park a bit further along. 'Look Ron blackberries' I heard as he dove into the thickets.





This goes out to ALL you blackberry lovers and I hope it finds you with blackberry juice all over your fingers....do enjoy!

  1. Those blackberry photos are fabulous!

    We love making blackberry jam every September (blackberries are later here). Nothing as yummy as blackberry jam on a freshly baked scone!

  2. Your blackberry season is so much later than ours! It must be a pleasure picking them - except for the barbs, of course!
    They look so good - and plentiful!
    MMMmmmm, blackberry pie! Or jam, or cobbler!

  9. No blackberries here, I'm afraid.
    Sophie, I met a dog today that looked a lot like you, only black. She's a goldendoodle, very soft coat, friendly and playful. She made me think of you.

  11. I am at a time disadvantage with my comments b/c I live on the west coast and we're soo behind! But the pictures are great and so are blackberries. Your daddy has good taste!--Inger

    Oh, do you know what disadvantage means, Sophie? It's a pretty long word, but then you're such a smart dog. Just wondering.

  15. I used to live on the west coast before realizing that I *had* to live in the mountains. But, I loved the blackberries. We used to pick huge quantities in a very short time during our dog walks! So, I second you!
