The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - POLITICS -

week, my hus­band and I went black­berry pick­ing not far from our flat. While for­ag­ing in the sun­shine, we were sur­prised to hear one passer-by de­clare scathingly: “Ugh – I wouldn’t eat those.”

We both tried not to laugh (the crum­ble was de­li­cious in­ci­den­tally) as she went on her way. But on a more se­ri­ous note, it is sad to think some­one could be so dis­con­nected from na­ture. Where does she think fruit comes from?

Black­ber­ries aren’t hard to find this time of year – even in a built-up area like ours – so get out there and en­joy one of life’s sim­ple plea­sures.
