Colorberries

The colors of blackberries are confusing. The reds are the green ones and the black are the red ones. No, I don't talk about European politics. I talk about blackberries!

Unripe berries should be green. Ripe berries should be red. Brown berries should be disgusting and black berries should be mobile phones or rotting berries - or something like that.

No, everything is the other way around, when it comes to blackberries. The unripe berries are brown. The lesser ripe are red. They lure harmless children with color in an acid trap. The ripe berries are black. The look like the only fruit which a youth on in a goth outfit could enjoy. The only thing they have from green to black in common are thorns. Nasty thorns. They attack even a harmless photographer like me. I still have to tend my wounds.

If you want see appetizing ripe and inspiring beautiful blackberries you have to visit Heidi's garden on Photoblog.

I am not a big fan of black berries.  Although I will have them on occasion or make something with them such as the ice cream I made a while back, but truth be know I like raspberries and strawberries the best.

We normally have loads of blackberries (or Gothberries as I will think of them now) in the hills above the village but the sun has frazzled the bushes. I don't think we will get anything this year and I always look forward to my Gothberry and apple crumble in the autumn angry

Apple crumble is less dangerous - imagine the blood and pain to get some damned goths in a basket! joy

But just think how strong and brave you will feel after picking a basket full of gothberries and not being killed! muscle

I was very eager to take all pictures at once - to be economical greedy instead of having regrets over one missing picture forever. I'm grateful for this very good invention of 32 MB SD-cards. joy
