Recently we’ve been going on little ‘foraging’ adventures picking blackberries and wild strawberries. This is something I used to do with my Grandmother and something I used to look forward to; along with baking with her.
Our most recent berry hunt was up at Golden Acre Park, (which by the way is a beautiful place). The look of wonder and joy on Roman’s face while he was helping Aria pick berries… it took me back to my childhood. We had a lovely bit of fun, (for free), finding ripe berries to eat with our picnic.
From now on we have to take an empty pot out to parks and anywhere outdoors just in case the kids want to go on a berry hunt. Not that I mind, I LOVE blackberries.
Golden Acre Park isn’t just great for finding berries, it’s also got a lake with a family of swans and great little walks through woodland and landscaped gardens. We definitely plan on going back.
