Evening Shadows

Behind the tall grass and under the wires are some blackberry vines we planted about 2 years ago. So far we have been very disappointed in them. Can't tell yet if they are even alive. Up a little farther are bush blackberries that have done much better.

What a beautiful view, Dot! We planted a blackberry bush a few years ago and I'm not quite sure what to do with it. LOL
Hugs,

That is such a lovely photo.

Isn't it funny how the same type of plant grown in two similar places can behave so differently? I hope that it takes off for you this year!

It's a pretty photo... I keep thinking that a deer is going to jump out of those thick trees in the back there!!

I am looking a little further at that beautiful old barn. Wow, that is a beautiful view you captured.

Nice view from your property! A farmer here has raspberries and they look terrible in the winter but get their green leaves and grow wonderful berries in the summer. Perhaps you need to treat the vines with a layer of manure for their roots?

Annie said...

There are blackberries that grow just a half mile from me and soon I'll be able to go a get some. I am eager. I do hope yours give you lots of joy this year.

My blackberries seem to be doing great, I have put up an 8 foot high fence for them and have to prune them back. but my raspberries have not done so well.
About the post with the barn, During the prohibition years, Canadian booze was shipped south and lots of money was made

Regardless of the bush, the view looks very fine. Just a lovely sight.

This is a nice picture of the area. I don't see the bushes but they are often hard to start. I want to plant some raspberries this spring and they take a lot of care. If I thought I could get the blackberries to work out I would choose them instead.

A very charming view.
Good luck with the berries.

Had no idea there was wild blackberries in Georgia! Thanks for sharing that knowledge. We have lots and lots of them in the forests of Sweden. Maybe, it is not the same kind? I guess as Georgia is in the US, they have to be much much bigger. ;-)

blacberrys grow here and nothing tastes better than blackberry cobbler.

Pretty .. and I get fruit fresh from the produce section of our not very Super Market

Everything still look dry there.

Wild berries are so plentiful here I have never tried to cultivate any. We harvest from mother nature, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, high bush cranberries, bog cranberries.
Berries are so good for you, antioxidants all.

When picking berries one keeps an eye out for the other great picker, the black bear.

Lovely photo, Dot. Shadows are among my favorite things to look at and take pictures of. Well done!

Dick said...

Nice view, I like the long shadows.
Is that barn in the background yours???

david mcmahon said...

Now that is utter tranquillity, Dot.

Thank you for your lovely comment. I did chuckle at your quip on whether my wife helps run my blog and answering comment .... the ONLY time in her life she has looked at my blog was about eight months ago when a work colleague of hers said ``Have a look at this guy's blog - it's GREAT''!!

Dot, this is a beautifully composed picture. Love the color shadings and shadows.

Sandy Carlson said...

I hope the spring injects them with new life!

Dear Dot,
Great shot again and so wonderfull are those lines... Very nice evening shadows...where you live must be a lovely place to be...

Thanks for your sweet wishes for my doggy, I a bit feel sick of it too, but she's recovering.

Have a good (rest of) day

I tried to see that is these plants, but unfortunately cannot him distinguish, I know however that these plants want water and little dig!

Dot,

Try to get a shot of the blackberry bushes when they are full of berries. I do love blackberries. I like to make jam, jelly, and cobblers.
