New growth...

... means berries this summer!

I planted a few blackberry and raspberry canes last spring, and they did well through the summer (we even got a few berries) but it's been such a DRY winter and spring, and I wasn't seeing any signs of life, so I was worried they might have died.

I went out today though and took a closer look at it's looking like all but one of my berry plants is growing.

See the tiny green leave on this cane, close to the ground?


On this one some of the cane is turning green...


I'm so happy they've survived... I'm so looking forward to more fresh berries this year.


Here's a picture from this morning of a doe and fawn grazing in the early morning light...
