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...
