Raspberries. They taste like summer’s hottest days. So what are they doing on a thick winter cowl? Will they make winter’s bitter cold end sooner? Spring’s flowers bloom sooner? Summer’s fruits ripen in February? Not likely. But cuddling up in this thornless berry patch before you brave winter’s elements might just bring a touch of summer’s warmth to your cold day. Doesn’t that sound nice?
