Late Blackberry Blossom After Rain

(click on picture to enlarge and see the world encased in this amazing drop of rain!)

I was shocked to find this delicate pink flower still in bloom ... our blackberries have usually dropped their blossoms by July, and we harvest the ripe berries in August and September! I've never seen such a late straggler!

I'm not complaining, mind you. After last night's rain, I was mesmerized by the beauty of the blossoms ... and the world reflected in the raindrops.
