We Have Raspberries

It's hard not to use words like "succulent" and "moist" when describing the amazing crop of raspberries that is growing this year in our backyard...

They taste really good, too.

There are some blue jays who think so, too, and they have been trying to partake of the raspberries as well. I ended up buying some "anti-bird" netting that effectively keeps the birds from hanging out below the raspberry bushes and plucking the berries off with their beaks... They are still trying, though, and today I saw one do a fly-by and manage to grab a berry from above...

But we are eating most of them. Yum.
