DSC_7854When you live in a home and decide to leave it, the list of things you are going to miss quickly become evident. Our Illinois home was surrounded by wide views and we enjoyed a long gravel driveway that turned getting the mail into our nightly leisurely stroll. We also had a fence line full of wild blackberries.

When searching for our current home we had a checklist of what we wanted, brick construction, a few acres, a short drive to work, and what not. Having wild edibles on the property would have been asking too much, I told myself.

So it was to my delight, after we put an offer in on the house, we met with the owner who showed us….yes….wild blackberries. Apparently you can have your cake and eat it too.

Here are some of our lovely blooms and the promise of wild berries. DSC_7857
