The prickly wild blackberries are putting out right now. They are quite tasty and plump after all the rain we’ve had recently. I thought this photo was funny: The kid is in her purple phase, as you can see by her new glasses and choice of pjs. Her favorite color is actually orange. I am kind of glad our optometrist doesn’t sell orange glasses, though.
With blackberries comes poison ivy. This is also the time of year when bottles of rubbing alcohol and dishwashing detergent are by every sink and in the tub. Both remove the urushiol that makes poison ivy such a poison.
