As I was taking photos, two passers-by stopped to look at the flowers. Commenting to each other on the abundance of “blossom” and bees, they then walked off. I do wonder if they’ll be back with a punnet once the blackberries are ripe!

  1. I love these photos & the amazingly clear detail. I like the delicate shade of the flowers, but those thorns! They look like they could do some serious damage!! I can almost hear those bees buzzing! 🙂
