At a friend's place. :)

Enjoying our berries

We are still enjoying our berries immensely.
This is a slightly decadent take on scones. Freshly baked scones, with a good layer of raspberry jam, then a good helping of thick cream. Then pile on as many fresh berries as you can. All sooo delicious! :)

Reaping the rewards

During autumn/winter we tidied up the berry patch. Now we are picking tons of berries. Oh, the joy of it! Yes, it's backbreaking work, as the berries seem to be not only at the top of the bush, but also hiding underneath the leaves. So there is quite a bit of stretching and then crouching and bending to find them all.

Raspberry jam is summer in a jar. In this case, I put the leftover jam into a cup, instead of filling a jar only 1/3 or so.

 Today we tried it on freshly baked bread. With home-made butter. Oh my goodness! What a treat. :)

Berry platter

Tons of red raspberries surrounding some yellow raspberries, and just a few tayberries, boysenberries and silvanberries in the middle.
