The Backyard native plant hedge is in its berry phase! Carrot Soup took Gilly into the Thimbleberry thicket…
…and admired the elegant elderberries.
They wondered at the doubleness of the Black Twinberry…
…and patted the prickly yellow Salmonberry.
We are all happy for the birds to shelter and feast in the hedge…
…but always hope they leave the strawberries for us!
