Beautiful Brambles

When I was out on my walk yesterday I found a few brambles - I thought they would be finished by now but these look quite healthy. I didn't pick them as I had nothing to carry them in. So I just took the picture instead. 
I don't know if you remember when we picked loads of brambles a few weeks ago. Well, I rinsed them in clear water and then in salt water (as I heard that encourages wee beasties that may be hiding in there to come out), and then in cold water again. Well, the next day I looked in the bowl and it had mould in it - yukk. So  I threw the lot out. So no jam for us  :(  Maybe next time...

Hi Ellie, It is to bad that the berries moulded before you had a chance to turn them into jam. At least they make a pretty picture.

They might have made a specially good wine [Noble rot}
Picture is nice though. That's a bonus.

Well, they sure look good!

Hope you'll get some that will work for your jam.

Beautiful capture ♥

Love the colors. They look like little jewels!
That's a beautiful photo. I never knew exactly what brambles were when I read about them. I always thought they were thorns! We call them blackberries...I learned something new today. :-))

Lovely photo, Ellie. They look so good and juicy. Sorry the ones you picked went moldy on you.

Hi Ellie

Your photos of flowers and today's brambles are very sharp. I read your blog every day.

ellie.....when working with any berry, you have to use them as soon as you wash them. i think you could have saved them, unwashed, until you were ready to use them and you would have been fine.

that's always been my experience. nice picture, crisp and clear!!

Perhaps you could just use your nice photo to put on the outside of a jar of store bought jam so it looks like you've made it!

I love picking berries...
What a lovely photo. Your brambles look much like the blackberries that grow in my back yard. Very delicious.

It's coming up to bramble season here in a couple of months. Hope to restock supplies!
Are brambles the same thing as the Blackberries we have here? The look very similar. Our season is mid summer and my kids could spend all day picking and eating them. Great tip on getting rid of the beasties:-)
What do brambles taste like? They look like blackberries. Lovely photo.
