Since you were a young girl, each year you and your grandma have made mountain berry preserves together. The tart berries were sweetened and stored in glass jam jars, some of which you’d give to friends and family as gifts through the years. Today, the tradition continues, and in honor of the occasion you’ve worn this berry-dotted skirt. The sheer fabric keeps you cool while you’re canning, and Gram loves the zig-zagging bluebells and red-petalled blooms, bordered by waving bands of gingham, dashes, stripes, and dots. You know this recipe by heart, but you both wear matching aprons. Later, as you indulge in a jelly sampling with toast and tea, you cherish this fun family custom.
