Today was the day to pick raspberries. And let me tell you, they were gorgeous! Bigger and better formed than I've ever seen them. And there were plenty of them!

It is always a treat for me to be out in the countryside. I just love it!

We couldn't get over how big some of the berries were. Together with a friend, we picked a total of 46 pounds of raspberries -- 26 of those are going in our freezer!
So beautiful, and not mushy!!!

And I couldn't resist some plums off the orchard's own trees.

Nor could I resist some of the season's first apples. I bought two varieties and am contemplating an apple pie. However, both varieties are delicious on their own.

And tonight I'm off to see Julie and Julia! I can't wait! I'm expecting lots of inspiration.

What did you think of the movie? Someone sent me the link to the trailer on U Tube but said the language was a bit off.
