Blackberry (184/365)


We would load up the yellow Cutlass Supreme station wagon and pick blackberries during blackberry season or spring onions during spring onion season. For us, food was part of the fabric of our day.

PLACE: Podunk Illinois
SUBJECT: Blackberry

I can't look at a blackberry bush without thinking about my grandfather. He was an avid picker - GALLONS of them every summer - and he would stop anywhere, without shame, to secure their sweetness. Blackberries make me smile!
