les mûres



Blackberries are my favourite august fruit.
A weekend in France, getting up at seven, la cueillette in the vineyards, and then cooking the jam that I bring home with me.
My grandmother always made gelée, but I like the crunchy seeds in the jam, and the little berries that fall off of my tartine.

I'm leaving for Sicily today! I can't wait.
See you in two weeks!
