We live in the city and there are 2 ways to get to the shopping area--a busy way with old buildings and traffic and the back way filled with green grass, some trees and a little trail that leads us to the Kelvin river and eventually to town. I usually choose the later and enjoy letting Soren walk outside the stroller with safe, natural surroundings. About a week ago my friend Laura and her daughter Sofia came home with us and on the way she pointed out some lovely wild blackberries. We had so much fun picking them and eating them again and again. It's funny how I've walked that path many times and never noticed they were there.
Today Soren and I treated ourselves again to these lovely gifts from nature. There is something so satisfying about being able to pick fruit and eat it practically off the vine! I wore one of my favorite sweaters and that wasn't such a great idea with all of the prickly vines waiting to grab me, Soren and my sweater but we didn't let that stop us. I just couldn't pick them fast enough for Soren to eat them.
Here is the evidence. His little hands were so darling and purple too! I just love the colors that come from nature! Can you believe it all starts with some little seeds?
PS. I just found a twig in my hair. Awesome.
