Blackberries & Raspberries today!


There is a farm down the road that grows all kinds of berries. Right now it is blackberries and raspberries season. It was suppose to be blueberries too but I guess the weather got the best of them. Gabby, my next door neighbor, Fayellen (one word as she says to say her name)and me went picking today. It was fun, but hot. We went real early like 8:30. Good thing we did because the owner said when we were checking out that she had to start sending people away. There were these cute British ladies there talking to Gabby and one of them showed us a snake in the Raspberries. That's all Gabby had to see to quit picking. I also bought some homemade strawberry ice cream that they made. It was strawberry season when we got here in May so we missed out on it this year.

Gabby frowning because of the bugs, the snake, and her failed attempt to pick raspberries. & Obviously, the snake. That snake didn't even move an inch when I flashed the camera in his face. Ooo, he was creepy! yikes!

No...you should make Giada's Raspberry Smoothie, she makes it with fresh raspberries and gelato (italian ice cream)! Yummy...That looks like fun minus the snake.
