Blackberry Picking


My friend Daniela asked me if I wanted to come out to her farm. She said she knew where we could find a lot of blackberries. 

It was an arduous way to get to the hedgerows with baby strollers, but eventually we made it. Unfortunately there weren't many ripe berries, so we'll have to go again if we want enough for pies. But Rafael ate them happily one by one.










There are more and more yellow leaves strewn on the forest floor and the mornings have a slight chill. All little signs of autumn's approach....

    1. He loves that kitten, and says 'mama mama' instead of 'meow meow,' in a very high, sweet voice, when he sees it. :)
      I wish you could visit too. We would be such great Mommy Friends. xoxo

  3. Beautiful Dawn! Our blackberries are just starting to ripen. Hopefully, the deer will leave them alone so we can enjoy them!

      That little kitty is one of the two that Daniela recently brought home. They are brothers, Max and Moritz. When they're big, they'll keep the mouse population down on the farm. :)
      You'll be here so soon!!
