first blackberries

The first few blackberries are ripening but its early yet and all stages of the flowers and fruit are here at the same time.

There is  the delicate pink blossom

buzzing with bees

the small green berries

red berries

and finally a few ripe ones. Autumn is on its way.

For the August Break 2012

Wow, I'm impressed yours are blooming in August. I always felt like England and Oregon had similar climates, but ours are on their way out this year! Glad you're going to get some soon to enjoy--delicious.

I am so excited that next year we will be in Scotland for blackberry season!!! Almost the exact dates too -- from mid August through September! I have missed wild blackberries so much!

brambles and blackberries are yomping all through my garden too, i have been picking and freezing ripe berries for two weeks now, but still have some blossom too, so a crazy season here for the plants!
