Bella picking wild blackberries

In case you haven't noticed or you're new to the neighborhood, wild blackberries are now in season. They are getting riper by the day in spite of our exceptionally dry weather. If we should get the rain that is forecast for this weekend that will help spur the berries on to a fuller bloom.

If you don't have time to pick you might consider getting a helper like Bella. She seems to enjoy picking her own and I'm sure she could show you how.

Last year we got her hooked on raspberries and this year she likes blackberries. It's hard to get her to walk past any during our daily walks. She tugs at the leash to get to them.
