The Essence of Summer – What does summer mean to you?

#Garden Challenge

Last weekend Woodlake’s Botanical Gardens in Woodlake, CA hosted its annual Berry Festival. Berries ripen in May and June just before the really hot temperatures hit.

The roses which are so beautiful in April, are just about gone. This lone bush still looked luxurious.

Roses are red…
Basil is green.
Basil is green.
These sure are sweet.
Blackberries are sweet. (Well not the red ones!)

And, dang, what are these? My memory’s gone along with the sign.

    1. OK, now I have a good reason to go back and check. I used to live in Oregon where the blackberries grow wild, and I would dream clumps of blackberries without thorns. They used to lie in the thickets in huge clusters of huge berries. To get to them you needed scissors and gloves, and I never had either. In CA they are different. They are cultivated. You walk up, pick them, and walk away. No fuss no muss! 🙂
