Enough berries have reached perfection! The sun is shining bright, the morning is enchanted with beauty and peace.

I’m going picking!  Hiking boots, Vicks salve to ward off chiggers, long skirt and flannel shirt to protect from the ‘prickers’ on the vines. A slather of sassafrass to keep ticks and mosquitoes away. Floppy hat to keep the sun out of my eyes. I would not want to miss a sweet morsel!

Not much danger of being mistaken for a model, nor bothered by anything looking for a pleasant scent… I have a big stick to part the tangles, or just in case a snake wants to share my space.

Well, I’ll see you all later, so have a good morning.
