I found a small area with ripening blackberries this morning on my rideabout and was able to gather about 1 1/2 cups. I took photos after rinsing them and storing in bowl. I think I'll try making some fruit leather tomorrow. In the meantime I saw a curly head of hair in one of the pictures so I created the Blackberry Babe. I made several variations just to get the idea out of my head so here are the original photos and the results of a very busy mind.
