...are here! As of now the colour purple rules! It's the
season that I look forward to, for this annual garden rite
of passage. The season may be short-lived but like all
garden produce, it re-affirms the faith that we have in
the good-ness of the soil...and in gardening.
The Indian Blackberry or Jamun (in Hindi), is sweet when
its fully ripe.
The first ones to ripen. Just a few at a time.
Many birds come to have their fill but when they realize
I'm around, they fly away...
...or turn away.
Even this butterfly tucked its proboscis in and perched itself
on a nearby plant. Ah, well! Every day isn't the same.
The first picking. Followed by many more, all sent to
relatives and friends--with compliments of the berry
