Raspberry picking in the woods

I’ve always loved wild raspberries, and I especially enjoy making pies, cobblers and smoothies with berries we’ve collected.  When I was a little girl my parents would take us on long bike rides along a trail in the woods and all summer long, in July 

Wind in our sails
