Have you seen ripe blackberries yet?
While walking in the countryside, who can resist the lure of a ripe blackberry? Not me, that’s for sure.
I was out and about over the weekend and spotted several clusters of glistening ripe berries, but also plenty of green and pink unripe ones. So it seems that blackberry season is not yet in full swing around here, but it’s not far off.
Everyone knows that blackberries are delicious (the BBC Food website has an array of delicious-sounding blackberry recipes). They’re also good for you! But did you realise how important they are for wildlife?
