Sleeping Raspberries

December 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

A beautiful dance of loops & curves at Mile Post 19 Farm.  Hundreds of raspberry canes bent and tied into lovely nods for the winter. In July these stalks are full of U-pick berries. After the berries are gone the leaves fall off and new stalks grow up for next year. Once their leaves disappear it’s time to tie them to their wires for the winter. My crop is very small and I tie them up each year in the usual ho-hum way simply because I’ve never seen anything like this – inspired! Catches my breath every time I drive by. These photos do not do the experience justice.
