It is that time of year again. Not only do I look forward to our July 4th celebrations I look forward to finding the first Blackberries of the year. On July 2nd I found our first ripe ones. It will be a good year for the berries. While berries aren't exactly a bloom I was thinking about all the Blooming Tuesday participants. I know that this time of year there are plenty of blooms to be painting. Cheers.
