First Fruits

On Friday morning, I went out on the courtyard to check on my beloved berry plants, when what to my wondering eyes did appear? MY FIRST RASPBERRY!

I was so excited to know that these silly plants that I've been babying and pampering might actually yield a crop. I quickly plucked the little guy off the vine and popped him into my mouth.

I think that I should've left it a bit longer. It was a bit tart for my delicate palate :)

There are several more berries just waiting to be harvested. I'm so excited that my first attempt at gardening has not been an all out defeat.

Yeah for the lazy days of summer that are sure to be coming soon!

How exciting to see! I too would have taken a picture, (perhaps several) of the first cute little rasberry. It's those simple sentimental things in life that seem to always bring smiles.

Ooooh, the berry looks so yummy! I understand not resisting it.
