Blackberries Plums Newburgh North Fife

Yesterday in a Newburgh High Street garden it became obvious that this years Fruit sale will be of excellent quality and quantity if the profusion of this wee patch is anything to go by. A veritable temperate zone  garden of Eden.

This garden, part of the historic Newburgh Orchard is a little unkempt, what a wonderful outcome, brambles have grown up the plum trees displaying flowers earlier and now festooning fronds of delicious fruit. Such richness.

Boughs made pendulous with the weight of fruit making it easier to gather. A gatherers heaven.

Above is the garden bramble and below roadside, not so lush but just as tasty.
