First raspberries!

by June

Today our darling daughters, Blossom and Fern, turned ten. Of all the sweet gifts that came their way from far and near, the simplest was a discovery out in the brambles: The first raspberry harvest was ready! Fern picked the berries and dropped them into the skirt of her dress. What a birthday treat!

Happy, happy birthday, sweet girls!
