Berry Saturday

I wish I could add blackberries to this beautiful picture of Spring-y berry goodness, but those are not good in the stores right now. So I’m just waiting until the Summer when natural wild blackberry will be available for free from all around Seattle! This usually happens around July. Did you guys know that wild blackberry is considered to be a nuisance weed here in Pacific Northwest, and people just plain mow it off their lawns and backyards? We, on the contrary, preserve every sprout of this wild “pest” to enjoy its amazing sweet deliciousness, although so far we don’t have any large blooming blackberry bushes around our house. But with its widespread abundance all around the city it’s not really a problem. Can’t wait for July when all sunny hills will be covered with ripe delicious blackberries that I’m religiously foraging every time I see them. PNW is love! 😀
