 Some wildflowers from a short hike

There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Oh, those are nice, Dot.  I've seen those yellow flowers here in the Pacific Northwest.

Those small, white flowers will hopefully turn into luscious blackberries within the next several weeks or so.  They tend to dry out though.  If they were on my property, I'd water the plants and make the berries become a bit juicier.

@JUAN here is a picture of the biggest of the turkey berries. About 10’ tall. Lots of flowers starting to blossom. Going to be a bumper crop. Too bad I will be in Thailand.

Supposed to leave tomorrow night unless Pelosi mucked it up. I’m supposed to change planes in Taiwan. They canceled a bunch of flights today because of the chicomery.

Mine’s about 8-feet, but my soil isn’t very good.  Lots of blooms, too. I wonder if I can pickle the berries either vinegar or fermented.
Merry Christmas

An Oregon Grape plant growing in the EllGab Neighborhood.  Not really a grape, it's a berry and yes, they are edible, though too bitter to eat off the vine.  Anything that takes sugar though, like wine, jams or pie, and they do just fine.

Some nice roses growing just outside of a neighbor's backyard.  (Click on them for a larger view.)

Utterly dry baked ground on an alleyway, and yet some small wildflowers insist on blooming.
