Flower of the Week

I know, I know.  Berries are not flowers.  For the second week in a row.  But they were flowers at one point that turned into edible jewels.

This week, may I present you with.........raspberries!  My first successful crop! 

I'm picking about a bowl full a day.  Not enough to make jam or pie or anything grand like that, but just enough for me to stain my pointer finger and thumb dark red as I nibble on them throughout the day.  

I'm the only one in my family who likes them.  More for me suckas.

This is the second season for this BrazelBerries Raspberry Shortcake shrub, which is thornless and requires almost no maintenance.  

You can buy your own here.
