Exploring my little piece of the planet

Dwarf Raspberry

Dwarf or Stemless Raspberry / Dwarf Nagoonberry ( Rubus acaulis)

 

Though small, you’re not likely to miss this little treasure in the woods. The flower is brilliant pink and stands proudly above the shiny, textured leaves.

The delicious berries, however are a little more difficult to find, possibly because critters found them before you but also because they’re quite tiny – about 1cm. Indeed, they’re so good that I usually forget to take a picture before I eat them. 🙂
