In early July a couple of friends came to visit us in Vancouver.
While they were here we took a walk around the Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park.
As we were walking, one friend, Fish, spotted some salmonberries in the bushes and offered me some.
I was delighted! The last time I ate wild berries was in middle school, picking them from Ohio wetlands. It was the golden time before the food-safety anxieties of adult life.
I’ll definitely be on the lookout for these tart treats on future walks.
