Looking Back

Bramble Bush

I took this Photograph of a Bramble/Blackberry Bush Flower 14th June 2020 in the Littlewoods Stockbridge Village. I love the look and the smell of these flowers. Some White and some tinged with Pink. I feel the Bramble/Blackberry Bush is one of the most versatile plants in our Littlewoods. Creating a natural habitat and shelter to a lot of wildlife. The flowers provide nectar for Butterflies, Hoverflies, Bees, and Insects. Leaves eaten by Caterpillars. Many Birds and small Mammals will feed on the Berries in Autumn. Not to mention us too who pick the free Vitamin C fruit and eat them raw or cooked. When I smell these flowers, I know it won’t be long before I have some lovely Blackberry Crumble.
