I went foraging.

Look at these babies.
This bowl is the product of my favourite aspect of the Pacific Northwest – things grow.
All of these berries are early risers from the plants/weeds in the yard.

These are some trailing blackberries that have snuck into the yard. The vine is hugging a small evergreen, but they are friends, I can tell.
We will have plenty of Himalayan blackberries (much to the dismay of my resident gardener), but they have not ripened yet. These few trailing blackberries are tastier though, and quite a treat.

The blueberries are bigger and much yummier this year. It must have been blueberry weather. Only a few have ripened, but I'm ready for surprise blueberry pancakes any minute now.

This one is another new discovery for this year, the huckleberry that was previously just known as the "pretty green tree by the window with the red fruit." I'm not sure how I feel about the berry, but it rounds out the fruit offerings in the yard quite nicely.

It is such a treat to be able to pick my afternoon snack.
