Blackberry leaves

20141011-bramble1We have enough blackberries safely in the freezer and I must get on and make jam this weekend. They are now mostly over and the leaves are turning fantastic colours that I was lucky to catch in some autumnal light this afternoon.

The leaves turn into marvellous abstracts when seen in close up.

    What beauty nature bestows on us and what bounty too … enjoy the making and the eating of the jam and I suspect your good wife will produce some wonderful jewellery inspired by autumns fruits too. I rather think I would wear a blackberry inspired anything!

    I had never noticed the lovely colours blackberry leaves turn in autumn! We call them brambles in Scotland and I love collecting brambles for making jelly but this year we were to involved in our trip to the UK to have enough time. Amelia
