Raspberries In October



While still reclined in bed, I snapped this year’s  first October sunrise! Such a wondrous sight to awaken to; the golden light had me up and yearning to get into the garden early.


I admired the viburnums and kicked my way through piles of huge orange leaves from the bigleaf maples, which cover the earth more thickly each day. In this change of seasons, the last thing I expect to enjoy are fresh raspberries. Yet the raspberry hedge is at it again — producing more gems for us atop tall green canes.



I harvest a generous handful each day  — just enough to share with Hubby and sprinkle on our breakfast.
