Queen of the Blackberries

august 28 004bSuch a blissful afternoon. As my daughter and I hid amongst the blackberry bushes I felt so happy.

We were on a mission, and armed with golf clubs for swords, we took on the mighty blackberry bushes and won, bringing home a huge bowl of jewels.

Blackberries are one of my favorite things in the world. I think I used to pick them when I walked home from high school. But going with my daughter is even better because it’s something we both like and we work together at finding the hidden spots that have the fruit dropping off into our bowls. Maybe we’ll make jam this week, or maybe we whip up some cream and eat them greedily off our plates. I love today!
