Summer Sweetness

Back in April I was seeing lots and lots of sweet little blueberry blossoms all over the place.   The weather stayed mild and for once there wasn’t a late spring killing frost.    Even the bees were happy to see all these pretty blossoms.blueberryOn our morning walks, we watched the blossoms turn into little green berries and all of a sudden…..BLUEBERRIES are starting to ripen! 
P1060272Yesterday we went out with our pails to see if we could find enough for blueberry pancakes and by gosh we did! P1060284Had these for breakfast with real maple syrup!  Mmm mmm good!  This is just the beginning of a great year for blueberries.  Last summer we picked them in August.  Hope it will be a good year for blackberries too.

BLUEBERRIES!!!!! BLACKBERRIES!!!!! Ok that's it I'm getting into the truck and coming down to see about all this. Nummmmy looking pancakes too. Real maple syrup is the way to go. Even with other things like vanilla for instance. Why use immitation stuff? Why not just make an immitation cake and no matter what it looks like, tell em it's a cake. lol. Nice photos by the way. I always say that but they really are.
