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.
Yummi blueberries and beautiful flowers :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Huldra. Happy Blue Monday!Delete
I like blueberries too. Who doesn't? You took a great picture. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Happy Blue Monday, Hannah.
Thanks, Sally, and thanks for hosting! I like your Blue Minions photo. So cute.Delete
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!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Loree. It's fun to just be able to go out and pick some.Delete
Lucky you getting to pick your own blue berries. I wish I could.ReplyDelete
I guess blueberries don't do well everywhere, they like acid soil like here in the PNW.Delete
The berries look delicious.ReplyDelete
They are an easy crop once they are established.Delete
Oh, my! Those blueberries make me salivate!ReplyDelete
They do look delicious, I think it is the bloom.Delete
lovely series...luscious blueberries!ReplyDelete
Beautiful, aren't they. I have varieties producing from early season in May until close to frost.ReplyDelete
Wonderful! The berries look really delicious! :)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.Delete
Those blueberries look so-o-o-o scrumptious. Beautiful photograph that makes my mouth water!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures. I love blueberries.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Nicola. They are my favorite fruit to grow except that Aronia beats them for anti-oxidants.Delete
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!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Wow, those blueberries are very, very blue! I bought some today and they were nowhere near that colour!ReplyDelete
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.Delete
Love my blueberries but the birds got them all this year.ReplyDelete
I can't explain it but the birds only get a small portion of my blueberries. Sorry they wiped yours out.Delete
Blue-tiful!!! Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for hosting, Laura!Delete
Hannah, you've captured some WONDERFUL blues this week. Why those blueberries just make me drool!ReplyDelete
