Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

From the daily post: “FreshThe definition for fresh has a bit of a fork in it – it’s a state (new, recent, previously unknown) and it’s a taste or sensation (cool, sweet, invigorating, refreshing)”

I’ll take both interpretations and run with them. In the summertime, there’s nothing like the fresh berries that grow here in Oregon! Whether straight out of the market container or cooked up in a delectable pie (Vintage Betty Crocker recipes are my favorite), these berries beg for forks!

  5. Reblogged this on Northwest Frame of Mind and commented:
    Fresh, ripe berries are another summer treat I enjoy here in the PNW. Erica (my sister!) at Growth and Possibility shares a beautiful gallery of fresh berries and homemade pies. Again, much prettier than my dirty mole holes… Enjoy the view!


  6. I think I need to bake a pie! Yummy pies!


  7. Yummy! We spent a few days in Portland (in 2011), and on the recommendation of a friend, visited a farmer’s market at the Uni. So many beautiful berries – so little time! Our climate (in Victoria, Australia) is not as well suited to berries as yours, so we will come back one day, fork in hand!


    • Hope you do! The Portland Uni market is really glorious – how wonderful that you had a chance to visit. Someday I hope to come visit your corner of the world too.


      • The dollar is in your favour at the moment, so it’s a good time to come this way (not that that is the only consideration, but it helps!) Our favourite pastime is planning our next visit… so much we missed or didn’t see enough of last time!
