Beautiful blackberries ripe and ready to be picked.

 

 

 

We had an early blackberry season this year, maybe from all the rain.  Almost all the blackberries are drying up except a few bushes in shadier areas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pictured a half gallon of perfect blackberries in a stailess steel metal bowl sitting on a metal chair with holes and painted white, which is a contrast to the blackberries.
Pictured my favorite bowls for picking are the stainless steel.

 

 

 

 

 

You can smell the blackberries in the air, and it has a scent of blackberry wine.  The season is almost over, as it’s also getting cold at night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beautiful very ripe blackberries, in a portrait picture, they are hanging and each blackberry is very ripe, black and shiny, ready to be picked. A very green backdrop of blackberry leaves and also pine tree needles.
These are perfect blackberries. Right after I shot the photo I picked them.

 

 

 

So far, I’ve made some seedless blackberry jam, and froze some blackberries also.  I plan to pick the last of the berries and make more jam.

Throughout the summer I have been taking photographs of the blackberries.   I think they are great!  I love the color combination of the red berries, and black and sometimes green.

Autumn Colors in Trinity County, CA

Beautiful red and green leaves on a maple tree in Trinity county, northern CA.
Beautiful colors on this maple tree.

Autumn has almost come and gone already, the leaves are falling now rapidly and the weather is getting quite cold.   There was frost on the blackberry bushes yesterday morning and today it is raining hard.  Such a nice change after a long hot smokey summer of fires in northern California.

 

 

 

 

 

Blueberry bush leaves of green, red, and orange autumn colors.
Blueberry bushes turn brilliant colors.

 

 

My heart goes out to those rebuilding and who had lost there homes all throughout northern California.  So many people evacuated, homes lost, lost loved ones, and to those that lost their animals.  It all happened so quick.  I drove through right as the fires started in Lake county.  It was devastating.  I hope that everyone is safe and sheltered now.

 

 

 

Beautiful big birch tree with yellow leaves, and the sun shining with the view of the Trinity river behind.

As the rains fall the leaves disappear, here is a last glimpse of Autumn this year.  I love the range of colors from yellow, to orange and green.

Pink and White Oleander

 

 

Pink Oleander
This beautiful pink flower is toxic is all it’s parts, especially to animals.
Oleander is sually used for an ornamental plant.  It grows very large, tall, wide, bushy, and blooms white and pink flowers. For years on Interstate 5, in northern California there was Oleander that was planted in the middle of the north and south interstate.  Today it is being removed.
