At this time of year, every year, just as Autumn is almost around the corner - the by-roads and laneways are full of blackberry blossom for the blackberry harvest in September/October and they are so beautiful. I love the colours of the blossoms and indeed I love the blackberries when they arrive and I have great memories of collecting blackerries as a child with my sisters and brothers. We would use all sorts of containers - buckets, milk bottles, mugs, plastic containers etc. and then my mother used to make blackberry jam with them. Of course, we ate half of them and arrived home with purple covered faces which were the tell-tale signs! :-D

This is my inspiration for doing these two works and I hope you enjoy them. ;-)
