The Bread Man cometh!

The delivery man took a hand-cart load of bread into the store and left the truck door open.
I wanted to go over there and shut the door so the mural would be complete, but I didn't dare!

Harvest Monday: Foraging for berries

Wild Blackberries may not be as large as the cultivated ones, but they are free food!
The birds and other animals scatter the seeds; rain and sunshine make them grow.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 15, 2017

This blackberry thicket is on our property. Please do not forage on another person's property without getting their permission first.

We enjoy adding them to our breakfast cereal. Sometimes we crush the berries with a fork, stir in a sprinkle of sugar, and spread the mixture on toasted bread. Yummy either way!

Have a great week!

  7. I remember, as a child, picking wild blackberries from the hedgerow when I went for aSunday walk with my granddad.

  8. Mississippi looks like beautiful country. Your wild blackberries look wonderful. We usually went picking in the national forests when we lived in the northwest, huckleberries are my favorite wild berry.

  9. Wild berries are the best! :-)
