Picking Raspberries

Our neighbor down the road invited us over to his place today to pick some raspberries. The whole backside of his property is just covered in raspberry bushes, and he wanted to share some with us, as he said there were, “way more berries than one Livings could ever eat.” So we happily took him up on the offer and got picking.

The berries just looked so beautiful glistening in the sun…and they tasted so good too. Mr. Livings was in charge of picking, while I had the much more arduous and demanding role of quality control…though I have to admit I was a little too dedicated in my taste-tasting, quality control berry sampling…

I didn’t eat them all though – I managed to save enough to make a dessert...

...that I sliced up and we ate out in our garden...the taste of chocolate and raspberries in our mouths, as we felt the wonderful evening breeze and watched the lovely light of evening...
