Fruits of the Drumlin

It’s blackberry-picking time again on the drumlin.

Fields on drumlins tend to be small, and separated by hedgerows, which means that September brings free berries for anyone prepared to brave the dangers of nettle stings, red stained-fingers, and skin pricked by bramble thorns.  Here are some of the berries I picked last week.

Here’s something much gentler, harvested without pain – sweet pea in my aunt and uncle’s garden, still fragrant and beautiful even on a rainy day.

    We used to go blackberry picking as kids. Blackberry and apple crumble. The best.

      There will be crumbles. Not yet, but the berries are waiting in bags in the freezer.


  2. Oh, how I would love to have good blackberries! The ones from the store taste like windex. 😦


  3. Can’t wait to go blackberrying in London! The cemetery next door is virtually bursting with them 🙂
    Love your pics!
