Nature & Benji

Blackberries July 2017        Benji on his walk

I have never known Blackberries to be ready in July. When I first moved to Wales in 1977 I remember picking Blackberries with the children , in the first week of September. Neath has a very old fair held in the3 second week of September. The children would go round to the houses on the estate selling their Blackberries. The money collected was then spent down at the fair.

Benji loves his walks. In the back ground you can see the water. We are in Eaglesbush where once there was great activity with the iron works. Very little left now to show of its existance.

Benji has been to the vets tonight re his itching. He has had an injection and I’ve to bathe the areas in salt water and we go back next week to see how he’s got on.

    Oh, I love blackberries especially in a cobbler or pie, blackberry jam is yummy too. Sure hope sweet Benji is getting good results from the shot and those itches are going away. Hugs sweet Mary and nose kisses for sweet Benji.
