Friday Fictioneers 6/29 – via Madison Woods

Liz patiently watered the raspberry bushes that she lovingly nurtured each summer.  They had grown to five feet tall and were bearing fruit that had to be picked daily.

Raspberry season was one of Liz’s favorite times as a child.  Her grandfather’s trellised vines were twice her height.  Each morning she and her grandmother filled a bucket with ripe berries. It was her job to pick from the bottom.

After blessing the harvest they would eat a bowl of raspberries covered in thick cream.  Today Liz wanted to prepare her grandmother’s favorite dessert for her granddaughter, raspberries and pound cake.
