We do this every year, they love it. And on Saturday, when my older girl asked if we could pleeease go blackberry picking today, herself and her brother whooped & cheered with delight.
It’s a great activity to partake in with your children and creates memories that last a lifetime.
I can’t help but smile as I listen to children declare who has picked the biggest blackberry. They really get into it, stretching up high to see who can reach the farthest, climbing gates and getting lost among thorns and briars without a care in the world. When we came back from our jaunt the younger children were introduced to the joys of blackberry picking in the back garden.
The smallest boy was more interested in eating them! My little fairy girl got stung by nettle and was not impressed. She promptly announced that she ‘no like blackbewwies’!
I will share the recipes from the fruits of our labour over the coming week.
