Raspberries.  Fresh raspberries.  Summer is an amazing time of year when all of fresh fruits hit the markets.  I love to buy local fruits and veggies, and this week a friend of mine on the West Coast was talking about all of the fresh raspberries in her yard.  She posted some photos that were delicious! This inspired my card painting for this week.  It’s a raspberry bush.  Or at least my interpretation of one!

When we lived in Minnesota a few years back, our neighbors had berry bushes in their backyard.  We’d get the honor of harvesting the berries for them while they were on vacation.  Fresh strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.  I remember one night the first summer we lived there.  They walked over from their back yard (we have no fences!) and invited us over for homemade ice cream and fresh raspberries.  What a wonderful treat! We had great neighbors in Minnesota.
