photo blog: from the garden


All of the following pictures were taken over the last days in my garden. The next jam-production is only a question of time.

While I like flowers it's this side of garden I like even more. The bushes and trees go through the biggest transition, each spring I think "Oh no, that one didn't survive the winter" and then after a struggle in March/April most of them pull through.


Blackberries, they take their time. Each year.

Black current, I love their flavor, even the leaves smell like their fruit.

Raspberry, we do have different sorts which give us fresh raspberries from June till September

Golden Raspberry, finer and sweeter than ordinary raspberries.

just now, they have a shorter season and contrary to ordinary raspberry, all fruit mature in a short period, about 2 max 3 weeks :)

I always put some in the freezer - until I have time to make jam, or smoothies ;)

You and G seem to live such a wonderful life. I think that's awesome. :)

BTW, it's nice to see you (new blog photo). :)

@mirl it includes some work, but we both "did our time" in big cities and now we just prefer to have them nearby :)
Thank you for comment.
