Blackberry Invasion

Out walking the other day, C spotted proof positive that blackberries are tenacious – – check out this pic:

This blackberry has taken root in the little nest between a branch & trunk of a garry oak tree!

It must be 7 or 8 feet off the ground!

My guess is the seed got there via the digestive tract of a bird.  I wouldn’t have expected that seed to sprout & survive in this location.  Perhaps that bird wanted his very own berry patch?
