Blackberries are Back

No, not the wireless gadget... the plump, juicy berries.  Dozens of blackberry briars fell victim to the blade, today...  The rotating one on my mower, that is. It's probably painted with berry slurry.

They're everywhere.  Maybe the mild winter brought them on.  All along the edge of the yard and woods they reach out with their thorny vines to claw at passersby. 

They've even wound their way up into the hedges in front of the house.  A large berry greeted me, earlier this week, when I peeked out the front window.  It was hanging right at eye level.  

They're plotting something.
