Ah, Sweet Summer

In general Summer is amazing.

If you have an air-conditioned house.

There's the time-off for those of us in a school-year template profession. There are thunderstorms. There are abundant garden delights. There's lemonade (okay, you can make it year-round but admit it, it just doesn't taste the same in January). There's the smell of fresh-cut grass (not as often as there should be... *hint hint*). There's the sound of kids screaming and laughing as they run through sprinklers.

And there are these:

Beautiful, plump, juicy blackberries.

On a thornless bush, no less.

Look at the SIZE of these things! And they're sweeter than candy.

And they're in my backyard.

I love my life.
