I also have no idea what the second two pics are, but your camera takes nice quality pics.

Don't quote me but the second picture could be what we used to call "choke cherries" but seems to me they were redder. If they're in fact choke cherries my Aunt used to make jam (GAG) and bake with them but I wouldn't touch 'em with a six foot pole LOL. Now the Blackberries however yummy drool LOL

Editted to add: yup looks like Choke cherries to me here's my google search. http://www.google.ca/images?hl=en&rlz=1T4SUNC_enCA373CA373&q=choke+cherry&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=v4hxTMOUCceFnQeG-JmVCA&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CCkQsAQwAA&biw=1579&bih=676

Personally I found them to be too 'bitter' in taste ... Yuck LOL

Seems to me I've also seen known that last picture too ... If I'm not mistaken there's a fruit in them but damn if I can remember the name of them, sorry. Ooo I take that back I think I was mistaking them for passion fruit ... but still I've seen those somewhere LOL

Thanks everyone.....now I know I can eat the blackberries. Was pretty sure that's what they were but wanted to check. Was kind of disappointed, I was so excited to see 'raspberries' growing there. Embarassed

Second one I don't have a clue, the unripe ones are pink with the odd purple, well ripened one in with them.....I'll confine my activity with them to shooting them, not eating.

The last one is a Scottish thistle. A lot of them around...love the look of them, but hate backing into them getting out of the jeep.

The camera is a 4 - 5 yr old Olympus FE 220, just a pocket job I picked up off Kijiji for $30....was lucky that someone needed money and I got an awesome deal. I've got a better Canon my daughters gave me but it's larger, my little one goes everywhere with me.....not the greatest for some indoor shots but nice for outside.
