Many thanks to Grumpy and Lorraine for your kind comments on this image, thank you for viewing my gallery. Grumpy, I would just like to say I used the colours from the leaves for the border, maybe next time I'll try the fruits. Lorraine, Sorry to hear you haven't had blackberrys in a long time. I can't see use having any this year, as it's been such a poor summer and of late we have had a lot of rain. Chriss:)
