A Prickly Bramble of Uncertain Orgin...


Boysenberry:

n.

1.A prickly bramble of uncertain origin, but ultimately derived from a western North American blackberry (Rubus ursinus).

2. The edible, dark wine-red to nearly black fruit of this plant, having a taste suggestive of raspberries.

Is it just my fanciful imagination, or does this fruit sound romantic and pleasantly scandalous to anyone else? I love the idea of eating fruit "suggestive" of anything.

Anyhow, good morning, ya'll.

Morning to you, hon!

Mmm, suggestive fruit! The pomegranate is very much that way. I got your postcard in the mail while I was in Texas. You can be sure that at least 25 co-workers probably ready it before me since it comes to work :) Oh well, next time give them something to talk about!! That's what is so great about postcards, right? Say something about how you can't wait to be an "Aunt" for the first time. That will really freak everyone out, but no one will actually come and ask me about it. Then I'll leave in 6 months -- hopefully thinner and they'll all wonder if they misread something. Anyway, love you and sorry I didn't call again while I was in TX. Time just got away from me.

Did I hear the word "suggestive " and "fruit"? Did I read bramble and raspberry and pomegranate?
mm...may I bring a bit of wild honey for the tea, perhaps?

Gretchen, many more postcards to come, along with a couple more packages of perishables. And Lee, you're always welcome to tea! (: And, yes, wild honey fits the bill!
