Oh Focke

DAY 90 (4 JULY) – Blackberry bramble (Rubus gratus Focke) (Farnham Park)

I must have walked past these in Farnham Park so many times and never noticed. Strange that a vicious bramble should bring forth such delicate flowers in pastel shades – and later such delicious fruit. I like the sort of mixed media, vegan salad effect.

I can only think the Latin name was given when someone gathering blackberries got too close to a thorn.
