It's Blueberry time in Maine

The tiny wild berry doesn't taste like the big Blueberries.
Sooo much better!
It's that time of  the year in Maine









Blueberries,Raspberries and Black Berries.
All glistening in the noon day sun.













The best part NO SNAKES!!!
you are safe in Maine.
Just like Ireland.
Seeing this site makes me think of
my childhood days, innocent
life, no worries. Everyday an adventure.






























These raspberries are all along my drive way
and some in the back yard. The blueberries
 are almost ready to pick they are everywhere,
 the rock garden and all along the road.



























I made this with my
 ice cream maker
few years ago, lot of work,
but delish.















My Cherry tree has little cherries also.
Who has time to paint..

Oh how envious I am of all your berries. We only had 4 tomatoes from our two plants. Thank our son has huge tomato crop.

Small shrub blueberries grow in North Georgia, not at the tail end of the Piedmont where I live.

Yes, they are better.

Grandma had blue berry bushes growing on the ditch banks to her house. We'd pick/eat, enough leftover and grandma would make a blueberry pie.

She was magic.

Wish I could taste your cheese cake. XO T

Blueberries are such a healthy , delicious fruit! I'm on diet now, and with my coffee in the morning, I eat a sort of light buckwheat cracker on which I put a thin film of blueberries' light confiture.The whole thing is about 10 calories only, and it keeps me away from cake.

These berries speak summer. Countless pies, tartes, ice creams, cobblers have been made to celebrate these jewels, and so have POEMS. One of my favorite poem by the late Irish poet, Seamus Heaney, is "Blackberry picking." Go to Youtube Yvonne, and look for HIM reciting this poem. With that fabulous Irish accent, he walks you along his memory lane and invites you to listen to his rich account of a simple activity that evokes images of summer, no matter WHO YOU ARE.

ENJOY!

Summer's gone by ... cotton candy, walks on the board walk , roller coaster rides, kisses sweeter then ripen berries...

YVONNE! Good morning! You found Mr. Heaney and his poem.....I LOVE his voice when he recited his poetry. His words are thick and substantial as the Irish earth from which his roots shoot up and in which his father planted and dug their living. And....when Seamus Heaney was young, I have to admit, he was quite the looker. I love those Irish eyes.....Enjoy the memories; often, my mum's face comes back to me too through a sight, sound, smell, touch.

Remember that book BLUEBERRIES FOR SAL by Robert McCloskey? I read it to my grandchildren. Loved it as a kid.
