A Walk on the Wild Side...



...of blackberries.


The other evening after dinner, and after our familiar late summer afternoon thundershower, the sun was glowing as it set, but before it did we went for a short walk.  Across the street towards the railroad tracks, entangled in kudzu and wisteria vines, are masses of wild blackberries.


With colanders in our hands we plucked the ripe wild blackberries off their vines and came home with enough to share.


They are the tiniest berries, and a little tart, but I am sure they will be scrumptious smothered in fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.


I think that this may become a habit.


{I'm so pleased with how these photographs turned out. I used a slightly different setting on my camera then I usually do and...allora, snap, just right - no retouching necessary!}

Thank you for your visit.

Ciao amici,
Suzanne

Wow your photos are so beautiful. You should be proud of them. I wish I could find some fresh blackberries. It's been years since I've picked any. For the last 3 months I've been addicted to them and have spent a fortune on them at the grocery store. And believe me when I say they are nowhere near as good.

Those blackberries look so tasty. My husband, mother-in-law and I used to go blackberry picking. We tied an ice cream bucket around a waist so we could gather up berries with two hands. Of course, our mouths and hands were always stained from eating berries along the hunt and picking. It was so fun! I miss those days. It is hard to find wild blackberries now. I suppose we could go pick them at a blackberry farm but then we have the choice of just purchasing them in a box and go and so that is what we do now. Oh well. Time marches on. And so it is.

OMG! Those berries look awesome! So long since I've found some wild berries to pick. BUT I found a half dead blackberry plant on the clearance section at Walmart for $3. It's doing great! Looking forward to picking some in a few years ;)

Your photos are wonderful. I am not a photographer but have learned since blogging that I DO like to take photos...especially of food. It's more about the pictures than it is the food. :)
