The Blackberries

All over the property, the blackberries are growing like mad. The canes seem to reach out into the road overnight. After taking a walk, I noticed that we currently have berries in all of the various stages. In the deepest shade, there are still clusters of lovely pink flowers.

Out in more direct sun, the petals have dropped and the green berries are growing. Each year I am always able to pick the first ripe berries down on our road, right were it crosses the creek. Already, some clumps in this area have their first red berries.
