In Bloom #11 + Wild Blackberries

Today I'm thinking about my Grandmama Hazel as it would have been her 99th birthday.  She always requested her mother make a blackberry pie instead of cake for her birthday.  

Yesterday, I removed these wild  blackberry vines that were growing in my blueberry bushes.  Picking blueberries is no fun when you encounter those thorns.  

Happy Sunday,



  1. Happy Sunday, Paige! I can see the thorns, but the vines and berries sure are pretty!

  2. I had a Grandmother Hazel, too! Her favorite wild berries were raspberries. My blackberries don’t grow near my blueberries, thank goodness!

  3. They are gorgeous! My grandmother loved black raspberry ice cream - and I had to look it up to see if they were different or the same. They are different, and I don’t recall seeing black raspberries very often, although I do see blackberries in the grocery store. Much prettier in the wild!

  4. I love this picture. Makes me think of my grandparents. Peaceful

    1. Rita, so glad this photo bought back fond memories for you as well!

  5. Yum. I ♥ blackberries. But I have never heard of blackberry pie.

  6. you are getting great photos of all these pretty things in your yard. I love blackberries
