Wild blackberries are in bloom everywhere: hedges of blackberries along the paths, blackberries cascading down hillside, blackberries rimming the forest. If we have enough moisture during the summer it's going to be a bumper crop of fruit. There is nothing like taking a walk, picking a handful on the way, and meeting up w/ a bear when you have blackberry breath.
A picture from my neighbor Doug Dearhamer. (Who shooed the bear back toward my property!)
