101 things to do with Blackberries
How can the year be passing so quickly ?
I was going to say passing through, but thought better of it.
We have blackberries around the cottage already.
These were picked on the 31st July.
I'm sure they get earlier and earlier every year.
Cornfields are golden.
I looked carefully in this one as we passed it for crop circles....
NO..... not a crop circle in sight.
Tourists are still flooding into the West Country.
It gives a new meaning to bumper to bumper along our narrow roads.
Welcome to the A303 in August.
The views are still as tranquil, no sign of Autumn here over looking The Blackdown hills.
Only when you really notice the grass on the side of the road.
You notice that colours are changing.
101 things to do with blackberries.
I haven't a clue, I know that if you dye mohair, the result isn't that good and you need quite a few Blackberries.
I always end up with a beautiful shade of black on my hands even if I wear gloves.
My face also tends to catch the black dye. The tip here is if your going out of the house when you cook blackberries, make sure you do it before not after.
Jams, jellies...... there's got to be other things to do with blackberries.
Some one out there knows .........
I've been having trouble uploading films on blogger.
Think this one is green to go, so thought I would leave you with the short film we took a few weeks ago when we were stuck in a down pour in Boscastle in Cornwall. In case anyone is really missing the rain.... enjoy !
