Out walking the other day, C spotted proof positive that blackberries are tenacious – – check out this pic:
This blackberry has taken root in the little nest between a branch & trunk of a garry oak tree!
It must be 7 or 8 feet off the ground!
My guess is the seed got there via the digestive tract of a bird. I wouldn’t have expected that seed to sprout & survive in this location. Perhaps that bird wanted his very own berry patch?
