On a recent walk, it was so lovely to see the fields in their golden glory awaiting the harvest...

and we were lucky to find a harvest of our own - blackberries!

I was surprised to see so many already ripe...

Couldn't resist eating some as we were harvesting, one to eat... for the box!

Lovely blackberry shrub, full of autumn promise, blackberry and apple pies and crumbles, Blackberry and apple streusel cake, blackberry jam, lots of yummy ideas sprang to mind...

Have you been out picking blackberries yet?


  1. They seem to come early now, I remember when the children were young we always went blackberrying just before they went back to school, that was late August / early September.

  2. We picked Huckleberries at camp.. do you have them there? The first blackberry I picked was sour.. maybe they're sweeter now. Just posted about our lake trip.. come on over! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    What beautiful fields--this area reminds me so much of places we travel through! I LOVE the gold of this time of the year and autumn:) Our wild blackberries are ripe now--my hubby has been picking them to share with his sister. I LOVE blackberries--yum!

  4. I wish I could pick blackberries around here. I love them. The fields are looking so autumnal there already!

  5. I love harvest time and blackberries! Your photos of the golden fields and blackberry bushes are gorgeous.
    Happy week.

  6. Just been sending an email to all my swap participants in My Home to Your Home swap but can't find your contact details. It is just to remind everyone to get in touch with their swap partner to exchange addresses as the swap is drawing to a close and it's time to get those parcels ready to go. Please contact your partner if you haven't already - happy swapping, Betty x

  7. I have blackberries growing at the garden, before we went away I picked 4lbs of blackberries just for the freezer, plus another pound for my friend and to eat.
