the taste of summer

For me, raspberries are one of the defining tastes of summer. Usually, i pick them in my mom's sunny garden and eat them fresh off the vine, juicy and fragrant.

The other day, I saw freshly-picked raspberries at the store and thought that I ought to try German raspberries, so i bought a little basketful. They were the very best raspberries i've ever had in my life: sweet, plump, and not sour at all!

They tasted like relaxing, sunshiny days of lying in the grass with a good book... mmmmm...
