bushes that grow abundantly and were full of blossoms and buzzing bees
( March 13 2016 post)
well, now they are heavy with sweet edible berries.
The berries have a sweet tangy-ness to them.......safe to eat.......
but full of seed much like a black berry. Most people gather them to make jelly.
The leaves are very pointed and sharp and they hurt your fingers when trying to remove the berries.
I have heard of people laying a cloth underneath the bush and then whacking it with a broom to remove the berries easier.
The Cherry Laurel is also heavy with berries. It grows wild here as well. Although, not good for human consumption, the birds love to eat the juicy berries.
My cactus was showing
"its heart" to me the other day. I don't know how this sometimes occurs, but once in a while I spot a heart shaped cactus.
You have asked if I am in the middle of the terrible flood waters here in Texas.........no....
I am far away from that, however, as I was walking with Sophie, I saw this quickly approaching
in no time the whole sky was dark and orange and the dust so thick and choking.
Horrible dirt storms are sometimes a constant when the wind is blowing hard.
The next day, my car looked like someone poured a load of dirt all over it.
It covered the grass and the pumpkin plants out in the garden.
But in a day it was over and gone.
Hope this finds that you are having pleasant weather.
