Tonight, just as the rain began to fall, I found myself picking black berries with an umbrella in one hand and basket over my arm. The birds were loving the light sprinkling, and I either heard or saw, Goldfinches, Robins, Chickadees and a very helpful Gray Catbird. I was very still picking. Didn't have to move much there were berries within reach to keep me planted in one spot for 5 minutes at a time. The Catbird started calling near where I was picking. Sounded like "Berrry - Berrry". Sure enough, he was right where the "Mother load", of the most naturally planted blackberries I had ever seen. Someone's got to make some pies and muffins tomorrow! Lots of them!
