You know when you feel like you are so busy that you think you haven't got time for a walk? Well it's always the time you need one right? And it's always the time that it feels the best!
The September sun was shining this morning so I called Euan and Chelsea to see if they fancied a little 'blackberry picking for breakfast' walk before work. Or as our friend Olive says 'blackleberries' (she is only two)!
So we picked blackleberries!
I love how the hedgerows I spent the spring months photographing and drawing are now full of Autumn bounty. Those colours! I love how the thick thorny stems look like they are full of bright pink blackberry juice. Like spikey drinking straws!
The leaves are dotted with colour too.
We got a good harvest! Thankyou brambles!
Ffion recently shared a funny song by our friend Peter (he's not really our friend but we wish he was) Broderick called Wild Food from his new album called Blackberry! It's funny and cute and you'll be singing it in the hedgerows before you know it!
