I went fishing earlier this week with my friend Whitt and we came across some blackberry bushes. We picked a few handfuls before we headed to our next fishing spot (you don't expect I'll actually say where do you?). They were really ripe and therefore, sweet. Really good blended with Vanilla ice-cream. The rhododendron blooms are gone and the blackberries are ripe meaning only one thing... summer is almost over.
