Pre Blackberries


As I passed the thicket of blackberries the other day, I saw that most of the flowers were either finished or going fast. I was briefly saddened as they had been so glorious. Then, taking a closer look, I realized how beautiful this next stage in the development is. The detail, even to my eyes without the benefit of the camera lens, was exquisite. So after the photos of the flowers a couple of days ago, here is where my thicket is now. No food yet for starving, desperate princes. But instead of stressing over a sleeping princess of fabled beauty, take a look at the treasures around you, princes! Enjoy what the day brings you. A Flower a Day #288  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )

  1. Berries-in-the-making, as you’ve caught them, Ellie, are charming and delightful…I almost wish this was their end state. The green and the pink offset each other beautifully. Then I remember where these buds are headed and I’m torn between treats for the eye or treats for the tastebuds. Luckily, with this offering of yours, I will be able to savour both. Thank you, Ellie, for making that possible.

    1. I know and agree, Janet… Were it not for those delicious fruits I would be happy to leave these at this stage. But the very thought of depriving ourselves of those tastes stop me before I wish for it too hard. Come back and look any time you want, Janet! I know I will be. Thanks again.

  2. Thanks very much for sharing that post Ellie. It’s nice to see the flower to the fruit process. I am intrigued by the way the little I’ll call them stamens stick up above the berry. Hope you have a nice day

    1. Thanks for persevering on the comment, Linda. Yes, not sure what they are, but I, too, loved that little detail. You, too, have a lovely day.
