Love In Bloom

Guess what this is:
Okay, I'll tell you: It's little teeny baby blueberries!

Last year, we had an early spring and then a HARD FROST that nipped those little babies in the bud. This year (knock wood, fingers crossed), the spring was late enough that the frosts have been fairly mild. With luck, we'll have loads of big, juicy blueberries right off our back porch! You can't eat much more local than that!

OH YOU ARE SO LUCKY! I am not sure if ours came back this year! I don't remember if ours had pink blossoms.
Whoa--I hope we were actually eating blueberries!!!

LOL! If they looked like blueberries and they tasted like blueberries, chances are they were blueberries. ~grin~

We have a blueberry thief around here, so we have to plant plenty of plants. This wild blueberry forager has yellow fur, walks on two legs, is 12 years old, and lives next door.

In other words, our grandson! :D
