When I was a kid I would spend some of the summer with my grandparents, who knew that a good place for energetic kids was out in the blackberry patch. We learned all about work and its rewards when those blackberries became Grandma's blackberry pie. Here we see the wee little ones just starting to grow out of the blossoms. We'll come back later in the summer because I've got Grandma's recipe.
