Wild Blackberry Blossom

Native Western Washington blooms are more subtle than other locations. Wild blackberry blossom, with salal blooming in the background.
I believe they are in the rose family.

In our area you see a lot of blackberries. Most are the Himalayan, a hybrid that escaped captivity, is very robust and has taken over the entire state. Occasionally, in little nooks and crannies you can find the older, native blackberries. It is smaller, more vine like and produces smaller, more flavorful berries. People who value them keep secret the locations of their favorite patches.
