Glistening Blackberries

Blackberries glisten in the bright sun of an August afternoon in Co. Cork.

I love blackberry jam, blackberry tarts, blackberry crumble. I don’t like picking the fruit, but I have many childhood memories of wandering country lanes with my family looking for the best fruit for my mother to make delicious jam.
Nowadays, you can buy a carton of blackberries in M&S cheaply. Oh how times have moved on.

    Blueberries are definitely my favorite for picking and raspberries for eating. I always said, if left on an island with only one food, that food would have to be raspberries. Great summertime memories for me with this shot. Thanks!

    to whom it may concern. I recently wrote a song about my best friend and I picking blackberries when we were children. I was wondering if anyone had a photo of 2 little boys actually picking blackberries. This would be great to use as for the insert background for the lyrics of the demo. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
