Raspberries are (kind of) back in season! I absolutely love raspberries. Anything raspberry flavored is my favorite- raspberry cheesecake, raspberry smoothie, raspberry lotion. Yum. Every time I eat raspberries I think of my grandma. She had a raspberry bush in her yard when I was a kid. (Only now do I realize what a green thumb she has- it's hard to grow anything out here!)
Some of my fondest memories are running out to pick raspberries with grandma. I developed an eye for picking out the sweetest ones- and staying away from the ones the naughty birds had already nibbled at. We had to pick them and put them in a strainer- then grandma would wash them and we would eat raspberries until we were full. Fantastic memories. Some day I'm going to plant a raspberry bush and see if it will grow.
