Our blackberries are nice and ripe and sweet.

My camera was out of commission for the past few weeks. My hubby said it was broken. I thought the batteries were bad ones. But he's more technical minded than me, so I believed him. But just a few minutes ago, he really wanted to take a picture, so when he put in some fresh rechargable batteries, it started working again! ...*grumbles* .....

Those blackberries look like they probably taste very good. Lucky you to have some in your garden.

Too bad about your camera, but I did enjoy your drawings, too, from earlier in the spring when you didn't have a camera.

I love blackberries! That look perfect. You definitely should make some jam. We see lots of blackberry bushes on our walks in the neighborhood but we always forget to bring a container to pick some. I would love to have bush in my backyard like you have. Yum!

LOL, husbands, who needs them? ;-)

Do you still have that much blackberries now? Mine are almost gone now. I picked a handful yesterday and that is it for this year I think.

Thanks for your comments, all!
There are still many berries ripening. I stop there and eat a small handful every day, while gardening, or mowing. So not many left to make jam or pie this year.
I'm sure next year will be many more, for the plant has become huge, with many new branches to bear new fruit next year.

Lovely and delicious looking berries. I'd make a pie and give hubby only one piece! LOL

Are those a late variety of blackberries? Ours finished weeks ago and there are none to be seen anywhere here in London. Is that a thornless variety?

Blackberries are a stand-a-lone in their capability of evoking the warmth of childhood and the erotic promise of nature and all that is wild within. All in a blackberry. Great photo.

I am happy to have stumbled upon your lovely blog again.
Your blackberries look delicious! Sorry about your camera....I would feel pretty handicapped without mine.
The Roses you posted about a couple of posts back are just gorgeous!! Are they a David Austen rose?

Silvia, I wish I was your neighbour and I could pop over and pluck some of those delicious-looking blackberries. Wow they are a treat!

Blackberries are enormously popular here in Texas, too, Silvia-restaurants use them for Blackberry cobbler. Enjoy the harvest!

hi all! I've been away for a couple weeks, just back to dealing with my various blogs and such.

nicole, ha ha! give hubby one piece indeed! But I also have 2 blond raspberry bushes, and he loves them, so he eats those, and I eat these blackberries.

matron, I suppose they are a late variety, but I seem to remember all the blackberries around these parts ripening late Sept/ early Oct.

mimi, yes, I'll defo participate!

connie, yes the William Morris roses several posts back are David Austins, and they smell heavenly!
