Two reasons to love blackberries, even though they're invasive weeds in our bushland:

1. They make excellent habitat for bandicoots. My sister-in-law Jasmin has been conducting research on these small critters for her PhD. Surprisingly, she has found the feral blackberries are now quite important to the native bandicoot's survival.

2. Mmmm, blackberries!

This one...

... is not making it into the bucket.

So sad, they keep disappearing into my mouth.

But mama adds more.

Who likes blackberries?

It's written all over our faces.
The pickings at Brownhill Creek are the best for several years. I have promised them apple and blackberry pie for dessert tonight. Sounds like a better idea than cleaning the house.

  1. When we pick blackberries they don't always end up in our bucket either :)


Hey, I would really love to know what you think. Go on!
