Berries are on the way.
The first to ripen, in early July, will be these wild black raspberries. Around here people call them blackcap berries. So exquisitely delicious.
These are the blossoms of cultivated purple raspberries.
Elderberries, still in bud stage.
These are the teeny tiny beginnings of hazelnut pods.
I had a bumper crop last year. It’s still hard to tell how good a crop is coming in this year, but every day I see more and more of the tiny pods.
