thank you for a lovely taste of your summer.


Those little tarts looks so sweet! Looks like you are really enjoying Summer!


Your summer looks just so delicious! The shot of the blackberries is delightful, I feel as if I could pick a few myself! And your little tarts are sweet as can be! Happy summer to you!


Those pies look so delicious! Nothing better than fresh berries in the summer.

I can't remember where you live but here in Kansas where I live (and am surrounded by ACRES of blackberries) the blackberries are so delicious right now that you barely need to sugar them for pies. Sigh. So good. I feel like I am on a treasure hunt every time I go picking. Probably because of all the danger involved with the picking what with the thorns.


Lovely summer images! Those pies are what dreams are made of! Happy summer!

Oooh...the blackberries and the pies look too yummy! Warmly, Cathy ^..^


You broaden our scope... such a sweet gift.


Can you please tell us or email me the recipe! I really, really want it. I haven't seen any recipes for raspberry pies and raspberry is really the only berry I eat.

What gorgeous little tartlets! I wish I lived in berry country!

I have many fond memories of picking blackberries with my grandparents. Grandpa would throw old plywood in the back of the truck and a ladder. At the huge vines we would pick al the ones we could in the front, and then up went the ladder and the plywood on top of the vines. My brother and I would sit for hours picking form the top of the vines, and we didn't get so caught into the stickers that way! Of course, you need to wear good heavy old clothes! Yum!


Your baking looks so good, I can almost smell the homemade goodness from here. I might have to head into my kitchen and get busy with summer's bounty.


Oh wow, those little pies look delicious. I've got a container full of blackberries in the fridge and I'm either going to make pies or cobbler with it. Mmmm :o) Your post perfectly captured the feelings of summer. Hope your week is off to a great start!

The house I lived in years ago had a HUGE blackberry bush that was from the Knott family, of Knott's Berry Farm. They were the best, and oh how I miss them on vanilla ice cream on a summer evening! Thanks for the stroll down memory lane.
