Collecting blackberries for the table is one of the gifts that September brings, on yesterday’s walk I collected enough for our house for a few weeks.

The taste of fresh blackberries is just one of those autumn pleasures.

  6. Beautiful! The dreamy quality and light and depth of field are just lovely.

    These make me think of a dark plummy wine and autumn colored leaves πŸ™‚

    I like the little orange hitchhiker having himself a snack :-).

  8. Gorgeous, gorgeous colours. I collected a load of blackberries myself from the local hedgerows round where I live…I could have filled a barrowful. On another note, your photos remind me of the poem Blackberry Picking by Seamus Heaney…
