The blueberries are ready to pick in the Midwest so, we had no other choice but to head out early this morning, to Huckleberry Hollow, berry patch extraordinaire.
The report we heard was that the bushes, were loaded! And they were. Row after row of beautiful blue brambles so, we were off, grabbed our pails and picked till our hearts content. Well, until we had picked twenty six quarts anyway, between four of us. Even then, it was difficult to walk away from the blue bounty.
Yum fresh berries!
Berries for baking . . . this fall?
And some to try now of course.
And maybe, some to paint?

mmmm yum! I love to eat all of the fruits of summer.
I try to eat so much I am sick of it by August … but that does not usually happen.
especially the blueberries.
the painting is beautiful!
Love it! Can’t believe the berries are ready for picking already! They’re beautiful!
Oh my goodness a blueberry fabric line would be awesome!
