its that time of year again - the blackberries growing all around our property are getting ready to ripen. i love the way the plants look at this stage, the flower petals are so delicate and papery, and out of them grows a wiry mass with tiny green berries inside. in another few weeks the berries will be ready to pick, and so delicious. we froze lots last year (we're still eating them!) and got all scraped up picking them. the sweet flowers grow on very thorny branches.
