Blackberries Galore!

Can I just say I love going on walks with Will that include stuffing our bellies full of blackberries?! We are pretty darn lucky that our road is littered with blackberries, which seems to constantly have ripe berries every time we check them out. 
We are surprised at how big some of the berries get, I mean look at that guy he's supermarket sized!
Of course you get the occasional super crazy tart one. I mean I love me some tart berries, but sometimes they are too tart for me, hence that glorious face I am making right there, haha!
A mouth full of blackberries is one of the greatest things ever! 

Sorry for my lack of posts as of late, with the house building I get so tired by the end of the day that I am just out like a light the second I sit down, haha! I will have some photos of the work we did this time around later in the week. 

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

  15. Hi Amanda! It's my first time on your blog and you've caught my eye with this post...
    I love wild berries so much. It reminds me a lot of my childhood... I currently live in Lisbon, Portugal, but I have family in the Portuguese islands called the Azores (in the midle of the Atlantic). My grandmother used to live in the island of Santa Maria and I went there every summer. Its also full of wild berries everywhere you look, and I used to steal it them from the neighbors (I was really young), put them in a basket and take them to my grandmother to make me jam or berry cakes.
    They are quite expensive on the mainland and for that reason I don't eat them as much, but reading your post reminded me of how lovely they taste.
    You really are one lucky lady, and Ill be coming to this blog more often!

  17. Oh, these pictures are so adorable!! I remember when we used to pick blackberries behind my grandparents' friend's fields in Wisconsin... we rode four-wheelers out to the bushes that grew near rail road tracks. It was so much fun and tasting the succulent little things was such a treat in the summer sun. :) Good times.
