And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. James 3: 18

I picked these ripe berries off the vines in our back yard. The berries were yummy in spite of the inconvenience of mosquitoes, gnats and prickly thorns to get to them. Although they are not veggies...they are a magic crop that we look forward to in the summertime and of course as we all know berries are a good seller in the grocery stores and at Farm to Market Days where the vendors sell their vegetables and fruits.

For the berries picked
I got stabbed and pricked
Then I heard them sing...
Sounding high and shrill
Leaving their sting...
(Worse than sharp thorns)
Til' they had their fill.
I could have sworn
Mosquitoes and gnats
Were like blood thirsty bats.
Poetry by me AJP

Thanks to Sarah Springer for the spotlight on 7-18-2014...Very appreciated.

    Wonderful shot of these berries, Andrea. I picked some today from our yard near the woods too, and experienced the same thing.....mosquitoes and thorns! But aren't they delicious?!!

    Yum indeed! Black raspberries don't do well here, but I remember them from when we lived up North. Here, we have blackberries, also very good! Nice closeup shot of these beautiful berries!
