As my hubby tends to the BBQ to get supper on the go I thought I’d tell you all about my adventures in foraging for blackberries this afternoon. Alan and I had already picked a few in a lane between the field not far from us and Victoria Grove but were told there were loads more to be had down the Pymore Road so this afternoon I embarked on a journey through the field onto said road to find blackberries a plenty which now soak in a bowl ready to be used in a cake or pie of sorts this week!
The scenery around that area is spectacularly beautiful. Before I entered the Pymore Road I headed for the field behind Victoria Grove…
Crossing the bridge over this river into the field is such a solemn affair, nature performs to our hearts’ delight! As I walked down the path butterflies danced about back and forth from flower to flower looking so very elegant. The path to where the blackberries are leads us past some houses and a small industrial area.
Just in the lane above, a bit further down I encountered the first blackberry bush and then another a bit further along.
Aren’t they beauties? And the beautiful scenery makes it even more worthwhile! Further down along the Pymore Road I encountered this breath-taking landscape and beautiful walking path…
I was in blackberry and countryside heaven today and all just a few minutes walk from our bungalow. We are truly blessed to live in such a gorgeous land. Well, off to help hubby cook now and listen to the beautiful sounds of our neighbour playing his cello in his garden with the occasional noise of a combine harvester rolling by. Have a beautiful day Briddies!
