Signs of Fall-The Blackberries Are Ripening in Kirkland

In Kirkland News, Kirkland WA on August 20, 2009 at 7:33 am

Whenever I see the blackberries on the side of the hill on my street, I get mixed feelings.  I’m excited to have such wonderful fruit growing almost on my doorstep and I’m sad, because it means summer is coming to a close.  Usually around the middle of August the blackberries are ripe and ready to be picked.  Blackberries are summer’s last hurrah.

I also noticed my Japanese maple, which is a gorgeous red when in prime season, is beginning to lose some of its color and its leaves are becoming green.
