The first ripe blackberry has appeared. Let’s hope that they are all ripened and picked by Michaelmas.Photo of blackberry

Another first for me; last year I planted a load of bulbs of freesias, lilies and alliums and now the first lily has flowered! I’m chalking that one up as a success.Photo of lily flower

Oh, and the hedgehogs say hi. They were very grateful for all of the shallow bowls of water dotted around the garden during the recent “summer heatwave” in the UK.Photo of hedgehog

  1. Yum! Blackberries.
    Our family went blackberry picking when we children were young and with bottling/preserving, we had blackberry pies and blackberry sponge all through the winter, as well as jam.
    Homemade/artisan/farmer’s market jams, jellies & preserves cost a fortune.
