    Are these close enough for you to pick when they ripen? Love the little fuzzies.

  2. Bummer to be allergic to berries! Is it just blackberries you are allergic to, or others as well?
    Love the focus and color of this shot. Makes me feel like summer is within reach.

    • They’re the only berries, but I’m allergic to cherries, apples and plums, too.

  3. I discovered last week I can buy them in the grocery store. Have been enjoying blackberries on my waffles with NY maple syrup all week. Yum!!!

    • Yup, we can get them here, too,(even got some in the fridge right now) but home grown always tastes best πŸ˜‰

    I wouldn’t have a clue if I was allergic to blackberries, lol. Love the pic, how hot is it in Tx these days?

    • Thanks, Doreen!
      We’ve been in the low to mid 80’s, but after that thunderstorm last night (with thunder that literally shook the whole house, and pea-size hail) it’s much cooler today, “only” 72 right now, and really, really windy (30-35mph sustained, with 50-55mph gusts)

  5. I have raspberries in my back yard… the birds LOVE them, but I don’t!! Nice photograph as usual!!!

  6. Oh my so sad! I love blackberries. Are you also allergic to marion berries? I would guess so since they are so similar. I don’t think you’re missing to much with the cherries and plums though.

    • I’ve never heard of marion berries.
      Yeah, I can do without plums, but I LOVE cherries! I craved them when I was pregnant with Melissa, but thankfully I could still eat them back then.

  7. You have something in your backyard you’re allergic too !!… lol… Mind you, I’m allergic to doing dishes, and they’re even closer… So what are you going to do with them when they ripen ??… Throw them at the neighbours !!.. πŸ˜‰
    Love the shot btw.. with all it’s tiny little sticky out bits.. πŸ˜‰

    • Hubby and the kids are going to eat them when they ripen. Didn’t think of THAT, did you? πŸ˜‰
      Hmm. throwing them at the neighbors wouldn’t be such a bad idea, though! LOL

      Btw. I CAN eat all those fruit I’m allergic to once they’re cooked/baked.
