Last year, my mother gave me a blackberry plant.
She had planned on using it herself, but then gave it to me instead.
To be honest, I hadn’t really thought seriously about growing berries in my garden. But, as a child, we had quite a few blackberry bushes in our backyard and I remember eating blackberries over vanilla ice cream.

This spring, I was delighted to find the beginnings of little blackberry flowers…
