Black raspberries

These grow wild right here in the city.  They can be found in many places; I'm sure birds spread the seeds.  This particular group were found growing in Vale Park.

When I was a boy, we called them blackberries but it turns out we were wrong.  My mother-in-law calls them black caps, which is what lots of people here call them.  Their true name is black raspberry.

The season is just about over, except for a few hiding in shady locations.  Is there anything nicer than going for a walk and picking a handful (or two!) of beautiful ripe fruit along the way?  My purple stained hands say there isn't!
