There will be berries

Salmonberries are the first to leaf out, then the first to flower in spring. Now the sides of the highway north are lined with their cheerful greens and pink accents.

Rubus spectabilis. The one in back has already lost its petals, and will start a green berry ripening very soon.

Flower and new bud.

The birds and the bears and I will be happy to see the first red and orange berries.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
