blackberry girl

there are brambly blackberry bushes everywhere around here. they tangle their pokey, prickly way into yards and spaces between houses and along the edges of fields and parks. they are vicious and invasive and terrible. and covered, at the moment, in delicious berries. josephine is in love with picking blackberries and usually can’t resist picking just a couple at each bush we walk past. one morning, ned suggested that i use blackberries as bait to get josephine out on her bike. so we headed to the nearby bike path and walked/strolled/biked along, stopping every couple feet to gather berries.

tiny, but big enough to provide a nice bedtime sugar rush:
