That's all she got

This Summer we have had nothing but rain. It rained almost the entire month of June. I love the rain but after 5 weeks of it I was ready for some sunshine. Yesterday was one of the first really beautiful sunny days. Perfect skies, perfect temps, warm sun etc. I have a ton of blackberry bushes in the woods behind my house. I have waited all Summer for them to ripen since we are moving I was hoping I could enjoy them for a short while before I left the state. Since we have had a couple of weeks of sunshine, I saw berries ripening, turning plump and shiny black. Yum!! I got my container and went out back to harvest my beautiful fruit. This is all I got :(

I sure hope the new owners appreciate the beautiful berries right behind their beautiful new house.
