Blueberry Love


I love summer
and the good things it brings
one of them being berries

so for today I wanted to bring you
a little bit of...





I love eating them by the handful


this ice cream looks delightful


with crepes ~ to die for


ahh ~ perfection








what a great idea!





blueberry syrup is perfect with


blueberry pancakes
a favorite in our house!






this is a family favorite
Blueberry Grunt
you can find the recipe here






many a pie has been eaten during blueberry season
in our family


















last year I told the story here
about when we were kids ~ week-ends at the farm
and Grammy sending us to the field
with little plastic cups
to pick berries with the promise of pie for dessert

well this is one of the cups

not sure where the rest disappeared to over the years
but we scooped this up when we were there
as the memory made us smile.


I am counting down the days as vacation starts on Friday

also watch out for a giveaway
at the end of the week

think of it as a little celebration gift
from me to you.

Wishing you all a wonderful Monday!

Love love blueberries which is one fruit we don't have here in Colorado. I did pick elderberries and choke cherries this weekend for jam though!
