Herself went with the Garden Goddess to put a load of brush at a place out in the country. She says she enjoys riding around out there because it reminds her of being a girl on the ranch, riding a pickup across a pasture. She came back with six dewberries, or at least got home with six, which she put ceremoniously by my mouse when she got in. It's a good omen for the year ... hope there are millions more out there. Dewberry cobbler is another pleasant little event in the annual calendar. We have a couple of volunteer dewberry bushes out in the back yard, under the bird feeder. I take it that the birds deposited seeds there in the course of hitting our buffet. Some reward for running the avian foodbank out back.
