Blue Monday, Macro Monday, I Heart Macro, Favorite Plant Picks

Welcome to my Blue Monday post, to see other Blue Monday photos, hosted by Smiling Sally, from around the world, click on the link.   I'm also linking with Macro Monday 2.  And I Heart Macros.

What could be more blue than some nice ripe Blueberries?


I'm also selecting blueberries as my favorite plant of the week, in the edible realm.   I can enjoy looking at plants and flowers, but they don't taste great and sustain life.

In the realm of flowers, for favorite plant of the week I would have to go with my new annual plant experiment, Browallia, which are going on to make nice bushy plants covered with flowers just like the people claim, the number of blossoms increasing almost exponentially from the first blooms just on the tips of the plants.   Note the cute heart-shaped leaves.


I'm also linking up this post with Loree's Danger Garden for Favorite Plant of the Week.

  3. Blue berries are the best! I'm eating some right now for breakfast but since they're store bought I'm sure they're not as tasty as yours!

    1. I guess blueberries don't do well everywhere, they like acid soil like here in the PNW.

  11. I am so happy blueberry season is here! I took my last bag of last year's batch out of the freezer just last week! I don't grow them myself, but go to a patch at the foot of a local ski mountain where we pick our own and pay but a dollar a pound.

    1. Yes, I just love summer with all the fruit getting ripe, hopefully not all at the same time. Blueberries have the most extended season, which is great.

    1. Thanks, Nicola. They are my favorite fruit to grow except that Aronia beats them for anti-oxidants.

  14. Good picks! I love Blueberries, too! When we picked them in the wild during a recent hike, I kept looking over my shoulder for bears!

  15. The wild ones are great. I transplanted a huckleberry from my mother's hour in the Olympic peninsula and some years it is loaded. Bears are scary, they wandered at night around one camp I went to in the Sequoias. We slept in cabins with curtains for doors. A neighbor with lung problems was clearing his throat repeatedly, loudly. I had just dozed off and dreamed a large bear was towering over me. I screamed very loudly. People still kid me 22 years later.

  16. Wow, those blueberries are very, very blue! I bought some today and they were nowhere near that colour!

    1. Chalk it up to my poor little Canon powershot. Blues and purples are very hard for it. I tried pushing the various color selections but haven't seemed to solve the problem. It does make a nice photo, though.

    1. I can't explain it but the birds only get a small portion of my blueberries. Sorry they wiped yours out.
