Black Raspberries

For Father's Day (and Summer Solstice), we went for a walkabout to check the Black Raspberries. Black Raspberries are one of our favorites. To our delight, the Berries are ripening. We picked some for snacks and for a sprinkling over the Homemade Peach Ice Cream that Melanie made for Father's Day. Yum.

In the tangle of the Berry Patches, we just gazed in awe at the abundance that Nature provides. At one spot, we found Gooseberries all around. We looked up and found Mulberries just beginning to ripen. And we looked over a few feet and found Elderberries blooming.

We are continually "alert" for the flow of all things Wild and in the Garden. We took note: Strawberries are done. Black-eyed Susans are blooming in abundance. Black Raspberries are coming on. Gooseberries in the wild are ready at least here. In our bush in the yard, they are about gone. Mulberries are just starting to turn. And the Elderberries are blooming.
