Summer doesn’t seem to have got started properly here this year as the weather has been so rubbish, but it’s already drawing to a close.
The evenings are getting darker, and the air a little cooler.
After saying that though, it’s definitely one of my favourite times of year.
Christmas is just around the corner (even though I do think that mince pies and the Christmas tins of chocolate shouldn’t be in the shops this early. Co-op, I’m looking at you.)
One of my all time favourite things to do at this time of year though is blackberry picking.
It’s fun, it’s free, and it’s something that everyone loves to do.
Even the newly turned teenager in the family who finds most days out “boring” nowadays.
So today we armed ourselves with a couple of plastic boxes and set off to see what we could find.
We found some lovely blackberries, which I was going to make a crumble or something with, but instead we’ve all just been eating them as they are instead.
Very yummy they were too.
Next time I may get to actually make something with them. 🙂
Do you go blackberry picking?
