This is what happens when Ina, our self-described “gardener with attitude,” meets a blackberry bramble.

Before Ina:

After Ina:

She may look petite and sweet…

but if I were a misplaced plant, I would not mess with her.
Thank you, Ina!! (And thank you, Maria and Judy for the photos!)

  1. Ina, thank you from all of us at HB. We are looking forward to your extended cottage garden in front of the berry bushes. I’m glad I don’t need to tackle this mess with 100 degree weather forecast for the weekend. This is almost October, right?

  2. Audrey, your words are too kind – if you and Maria had not started this ‘bramble-be-gone’ project, I would still be waiting for the boyscout troops to go for it! Ina
