Wordless Wednesday — Blackberry

Wild Blackberries

Our family has been picking blackberries daily these past few weeks. They are as delicious as they look.

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

But if you prefer the old style, you can use this linky:

Yum! It is a late season for the wild berries here in Oregon, but we have been enjoying them too!

Yes – it has been super late here in the NW! But they are lasting a long time! Delicious!

The background of that blackberry photo is almost the same hue as the background of your blog! Pretty!

The blackberry season is pretty much finished here now. It was a good year for them and we picked our share. Yummy but the wild plants are very thorny and hard on the fingers.

That picture is so gorgeous, I can taste the warm blackberry juice fresh from picking. Brings me back memories from when I was a kid, picking blackberries in the country with my mom and makes me want to find some near Chicago to make some jam! Thank you for inspiring me!

Those look gorgeous. We missed berry picking season here in NY since it came very early. Next year we are hoping to try some that are on the tree in our yard.

Mmmmm, my absolute favorite-est berry in all the world. Cobbler, jam, fresh off the vine. I love good plump blackberries.

Did you know that blackberry brandy is an excellent foreign travel accessory? When a new food hits your tummy wrong, a splash of blackberry brandy soothes almost instantly. I was a doubter, but when I travelled to China to meet my daughter, I had to rely on it more than once. My uncle used to travel all over the world for business and he shared that tip before we left! I was thanking him profusely on more than one occasion!!!!

Mine’s a funny WW – at least from where I’m sitting this summer with two teen boys, anyway!

Yummy! We usually have tons of blackberries, but this year we havent had the heat to turn them black. Lots of red ones though…not so yummy. Yours look great! Happy WW!

Mmmmm… our favorite! There are some that grow right outside our church, so we always get a snack before we go in.

My 2 year old took a look at that picture, pointed at it, then pointed at his mouth. I guess we are going to have to go and see if we can find any mulberries outside today.

Great shot!

Happy WW!
