So anyways. . .
The blackberries are peaking in our part of the world.
Yesterday we went to the patch in our back
forty five. . .and looked for the biggest and the best of the season.
Blackberries are the best. . .
just out of reach.
The biggest. .
and the juiciest can be seen but not easily accessed so we do ..
whatever we need to do to get those elusive fat and juicy berries.
So . .I said. . ."hold on to the back of my pants. . .I'm reaching in"
He held. ..and then thought I needed a bit more slack. . .
and I lost my balance. .
and wore the brambles all the way down.
Now. . .
this picture was taken after I went to the house and the clotting began.
I said. . ."we need to go back for picture. . .you realize"
Yes. . .he had figured that in.
The rest of the berries were picked. . .
with me pointing ..
and standing on the bottom of the ladder offering support.
