Blackberry Winter

Blackberry blossoms
Surprised by the wet cold rain
Blackberry winter
(Blackberry winter is a colloquial expression referring to a cold snap
that often occurs in late spring when the blackberries are in bloom.)


  1. Well, do you know, I said to myself, 'This must be blackberry winter'. It's the last one, right?????? Pretty mosaic and I'll bet you get some good blackberries from them.

  2. I learned something today - I've never heard that expression before. Aren't they pretty with their frilly little collars!

  3. There's a child's book by this name too, and now I understand it better. I love blackberries -- hope you get lots of yummy ones. Your mosaic is lovely.

  4. Oh I hope the cooler weather doesn't effect the berries. Nothing better then a fresh piping hot piece of Blackberry Pie.

  5. How cool is that? This is a saying I have never heard before. Love the way you have put together this collage. Beautiful - and hopefully, they will still be tasty in a few months time.

  6. Great collage of these pretty blossoms! I hope they didn't get frost on them ...

  7. Beautiful collage (and I didn't know that about a blackberry winter, thank you for sharing!).


Thanks so much for stopping by!!
