Blackberries in the Hydrangea Patch

photo by Ballard Avenue

Southerners make much of kudzu but I find it hard to believe it's more invasive than blackberries. It's a nasty plant with thorns and it will spread with the wind. Blackberries are everywhere in Ballard.

But blackberries do try to make amends. Is there anything better than blackberry pie? Blackberry jam on your toast? Mooshed up blackberries on vanilla ice cream? If there is I'm not sure it's safe to want to know about it.

I have heard there is one giant rootball in the middle of the earth that is the parent to all blackberries. Thus it is impossible to ever get rid of them completely.

Great photo.
