    Hi all; yesterday I came across this (delicious, edible) berry in among the Cedars at trailside. Could it be Pacific Trailing Blackberry? Bush is about a metre and a half high. Thanks in advance!

    Yes, looks like Rubus ursinus.

    Thanks very much! Lived here a lot of years but that's the first one I've found. Left plenty of berries for the birds. :)
