The Scent Of Summer
We finally pressed the last of the frozen summer blackberries into service. As the heat coaxed the berries into jam every deep inhale catapulted me straight back into our first summer here on Hornby. I remembered standing under the heat of the delicious sun for hours, bending my body this way and that to win my berry prize. And then walking home afterwards with scraped arms and legs but thrilled that the fruit of my day's labour was, well, fruit. I hope our b&b guest will taste the summer as they spread organic blackberry jam across their fresh baked homemade scones. Ah, the simple joys of country living.
