My baby sister Laurie lives in Alaska with her family. In addition to her two beautiful daughters, she's also got chickens, dogs, bears a husband and a moose. And RASPBERRIES! That's right, fresh raspberries fresh off the vine. Aren't they lovely? The colors variate and I'm positive that they are delicious! My sister sent me this photo from her phone the other day. She's got wild raspberries growing in her yard and wanted to share what she had found. They look yummy!
Summer is such a beautiful time of the year and having fresh picked fruit from your own yard is so fascinating to me. When I was growing up, we had cherry trees, green apple tree, peach trees, pecan tree and one pear tree. Our neighbors, the Yates, had the tree that I call, Food of the Unicorn! The pomegranate! Those little pips inside are like little red ruby jewels just waiting to pop their decadent nectar inside of your mouth. How wonderful it would be to sit on a blanket in your own backyard, eating fruit from your trees or bushes and reading a good book. Sounds good to me!
