I always know Summer has arrived when the berry harvest starts Smile From mid November until end December the Youngberry, Blackberry and Blueberries comes into harvest. This is a small display of some black and blue berries I got yesterday for my wife - her birthday is on Sunday and she wants to make blackberry crumble and blueberry cheescake for her birthday bash.

A lovely arrangement and composition, so well photographed, Herman, the black b/g nicely in keeping with the blackberries.
And with many happy returns to Mrs. Hermanus on her birthday next Sunday.
