Blackberry flowers.

I am fully aware that blackberry bushes are a serious weed that threatens both agricultural and natural ecosystems. I am also completely supportive of the work we do on the farm to try to get rid of as much of these blackberry bushes as we can.

But I have to admit that at this time of the year, when the blackberry bushes are flowering, I start scouting out the rogue plants and become a bit protective of them as I start to make plans for the upcoming jam making season.
