Newton’s blackberries

Blackberries + gravity = a bonus apple 🙂

I was out this evening picking blackberries by the canal, when I heard a crashing in the trees nearby.  Turning to look, I saw something light green and round fall into the water.  After momentarily going under, it bobbed up to the surface and started to float downstream.

I’d have thought “tennis ball” if it hadn’t been obviously too heavy for that, and if there had been human activity in the area from whence it came.  As it was, apple seemed altogether more likely.  It looked good, so I found a suitable spot slightly downstream, took the sandals off, waded in and retrieved it.

It still looks good, and will complement the blackberries nicely, though I’ll have to supplement it with something from the greengrocer to match the quantity of blackberries.

  1. Blackberry and tennis ball crumble… mmm.

    Sorry to hear people back home are reduced to scavanging food out of the canal, though. Over here they’re saying the recession’s over already…
