Blackberries!! And an Oprah rose....

One of my fondest memories of childhood was living in Wales! I LOVE the country, and still dream of one day going back! My Dad and I used to go on these walks, and along the way were blackberry bushes. I can remember eating them as we went......So yummy. Nothing like eating a warm berry fresh off the vine, now is there....

So this year when my birthday rolled around, I bought a blackberry vine thingy......and was even lucky enough to get fruit already. This is what they looked like last Friday....


And this is what it looked like last night. Today it's gone:)
LOL....I shared, I cut it into thirds so we each could have a taste.....lol, and boy, Oh boy....Was it good!


Don't forget to click on the pictures to make them bigger. Hope this gives someone out there some inspiration.....I'd love to see some mini blackberries.....


.....and while I'm in the garden, I want to show you my other birthday present! It's an Oprah rose. Really it is! It's called the Legend, and looking at the size of it, I can see why. I have big hands for a girl......Hopefully they show you how amazingly big this rose is.

Isn't it beautiful!

.....until next time...........

I love blackberries as well and they grew wild in my garden back in England. Can't imagine splitting one into a third though lol.

I've just been playing catch up and looking at your house...it is wonderful. I love how it is turning out.

I loved going for walks when we were at our cottage in northern Ontario because of the wild black berries. They were sooo good. I tried to plant one in our last house but it did not do too well. And yes that rose is beautiful!!!
