Asters and blackberries

We’re going back to the blackberry bushes for today in our Flower a Day posting! Again try to feel the warmth and hear the buzz of the bees as you pick those juicy berries, getting stained fingers (and just maybe stained lips). The flowers grow all around these canes, giving splashes of light here and there as you pick. You almost don’t feel the scratches on your bare legs and arms in the sun, it’s so worth the pain to get that wonderful harvest! This is a classic (and very true) application of the saying ‘no pain, no gain’! I will leave you enjoying the fruits of your labours now, until tomorrow. Have a lovely World Wild Aster day everyone!

  1. Yippee! WWAD. And there they are catching a few rays with their buddies, the black berries. It’s always nice to have good friends with you when you are chilling out and relaxing. One provides the ambience, the other brings refreshments. Who says plants don’t have a life? I’d wouldn’t bet against it…cuz here’s the proof. Here’s to life! Thank you, Ellie.

    1. I’m with you in that vision Janet! And that’s another party I’m happy to attend, even these days. Asters seen to be invited to all the best ones and it’s well worth tagging along because of the great company they keep. Thanks again Janet.

  2. Thanks Ellie again another lovely photo. Love the light delicate colour of the flowers’ pretty golden centers. With the red blackberries in the background. I will know where to look next summer.

    1. I never knew until this year just how many wild flowers – so many of them different types of asters – abound here. You will find yourself seeing them too, I’m sure, once they appear again. Thanks Linda.
