Blackberries & Figs

Today is our water day.  I like to go out early (before the sun comes up) and get the hose set to where I want to begin watering.  Once the sun is up I enjoy a walk around the yard to see what's happening in the garden. 
The wild roses are almost finished with their blooms.  I love when the bush is loaded with blooms.  This small bush is the last to bloom since it sits closest to the shade.  The large bushes are pretty well finished blooming. I wish they would last all summer...especially the smells!
This is my favorite time year...blackberries are ripening.
We have SO MANY this year.  I've already begun gathering new blackberry recipes to try.

It also looks like there will be a large bonus of figs this year.

But, I'll be able to enjoy them if I can keep that crazy Mockingbird from eating them all!
Guess I'll have to start a Fig recipe file (Mom...I'll need the fig jelly recipe!)
Till tomorrow...debi

We may need to reconsider this friendship. Envy is one of the big 7 and I am now envious of ur green thumb!
God blessed me w a gift when it comes to animals, but left me w a black thumb! :-(
Love you girl!!!
