It's time to pick blackberries- which means- long sleeves- long pants, boots, and of course watch out for poison ivy and snakes- but oh YUM are they good!
Although I have wild cherry laurel trees everywhere- I can't seem to beat the birds and wildlife to them!
But this year I actually got three before they did!! Whoohoo!!
Carolina cherry laurel, cherry laurel
Family: Rosaceae (rose Family)
For the first time since we have lived here, Handsome Harry (Rhexia virginica) has appeared in our yard, maybe its since we haven't mowed the lawn yet!!
the gardenias are beginning to bloom now..tey smell sweet and strong, and I love gardenia blossom fritters sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon!
