Fishink Blackberrying and Beaching

August 6, 2014

Monday was all about collecting…. memories of summertime, images of the day and blackberries

I don’t actually like blackberries to eat, something about the seeds getting stuck in your teeth and I’m not a fan of the taste either, but my partner loves them so we went a picking. It’s certainly the time to get a good harvest of them in the sunnier parts of the UK and many berries we’re still red so it can only get better.

Boo (the dog) was helping, kind of, by chewing back some of the lower brambles so we could reach up for those huge ones that always remained.. just out of reach!

She met up with a friend for a mad cavort by the riverbank and to look at the ducks, which weren’t bothered that they were being dog watched. They both jumped when one duck let out a huge QUACK, I don’t think they quite knew what to make of it all. All good clean summer fun : )

Yesterday we headed over to see my parents and take Boo to the beach. I like it when the wind turbines visually align to form a mechanical flower out to sea.

Boo is a great beachcomber, but for her it’s mostly about wood. I like the seaweed, shells and feathers.

Back in my parent’s garden I spotted their passion flower plant and reminded myself how complex and beautiful their flowers are. Happy day everyone.

    I agree with Melanie here and I know what you mean about the objects jumping out at you. Artists see with a different ‘eye’. Lovely photos, especially of Boo and her friend watching the ducks. I noticed a late summer look to things. I do like fall, but dread, dread, dread winter! We shall savor the last of summer!

      Thanks Joy.

      I noticed a couple of trees already starting to purple today and perhaps the early signs of Autumn are secretly approaching. Still sunny days here, so I’m making the most of them.. why think about winter, it will come when it comes : )
