The berries are in varying stages of ripening, which is great because it means there will be waves of berries ready over the next few weeks.
They are delicate, and tend to tear when removed from the stem. Here's an inside and outside view. I tried to be very careful when I removed this one so you could see the inside properly.
I wish there was a way you could taste them. They are one of my favourite summer treats.
On the knitting front, in what has turned out to be a happy coincidence, I just finished knitting this tea cozy in the Beaverslide colourway called Thimbleberry. I actually didn't know the yarn's name until I went to post the project on Ravelry. My original reason for knitting it had nothing to do with berries.

I will be away until Tuesday, so apologize in advance if I get behind again in my blog reading and commenting. Happy 4th of July to all my American readers!
