Wild Black Raspberries

black-raspberries-636

Last night Molly text messaged me to let me know she would be coming home to visit today.  I had something planned that I knew she would be excited about and sure enough when she said "what can we do?" I was ready with an activity and I suggested that we go pick black raspberries.

From the time she was a little girl we have had a secret black raspberry patch that we can walk to and pick from.  We don't get a lot of berries  but it has always been an activity that we have done together and have done every year. 

The night before on my evening walk with the dogs I discovered that they were ripe and I picked a few and thought to myself that I'd be picking raspberries with the dogs this year.  So as it turned out I was as glad as she was that we could pick raspberries together again one more year.

Picking wild raspberries and blackberries are one of my husbands' fondest memories. He lived in northern Ontario so they were abundant! And your phtoo is beautiful. I am glad you had that time to share a memory together.
