Wow, they ripened sooo fast! Nothing tastes quite like a berry straight from the plant. You are very lucky :)

I'm so not liking you right now.

I planted a Blueberry last year. No fruit what so ever. Super ace.
Maybe next year I'll get some fruit, if not I'm just going to steal them from your patch.

Hope your not too flooded!

Wow! I actually just said "ooo" out loud as the page loaded and I saw the berries appear. So, so gorgeous. I'd completely forgotten what season envy you always give me. You're so lucky! Gorgeous photo too. xo A

A little bit of heaven Lucy. Love these discoveries that await in a charming old garden that been a little ( or a lot ) let go!
Mmm... blueberries and breakfast go together so well

A blueberry aside... my fav beach as a kid was Corindi beach (northern NSW). We used to have camping, caravanning holidays in the 60's perched on this huge headland that delighted one and terrified one in equal measure... long way for a kid to fall and those winds and storms.
I was so surprised 3 decades later to discover this (nearby) land become the location for blueberry growing. In my mind it was native trees and banksia and the native pig-face on the hot sand which was the only edible thing in site!

I can never quite fit that place and blueberries togetehr... and to this day your rambling country garden is precisely the kind of place that I see blueberries being found in! Funny that!
have a good week!

I can't relate to the 'picking of blueberries', however I sure can relate to the long, growing grass and flood-drenched bogs. We have a ton of those at present. I love your "blue" picture.

Georgia

You lucky thing! Whenever I get my grubby mitts on blueberries I end up eating them compulsively. Lovely to cook with as well. Enjoy your crop!

Thank you so much. I enjoy looking at your site amidst the cold of a Colorado winter, imagining warmth. Thank you for sharing.

our 50-year-old gigantic blueberry bush produces really heavily every other year, now that i've renovated it a bit. that means this coming summer is going to be a big harvest year again! and i L O V E going out early in my boots to the garden to pick blue berries for our breakfast, or afternoon snack. i must confess to having 10 quarts of blueberries that i picked in the freezer.

Thnaks everyone - a little behind in responding. Still in holiday mode, I'm afraid....
