December red and white

When the snow comes all fresh and pure, our vistas are transformed mostly to crisp black and white. The bright greens, reds and golds of fall foliage are gone and the pines and spruce seem to desaturate. Moving water in the creeks turns a blue as dark as a starless night sky. Scenes are stunning in their contrast.

But every now and then, tiny pops of colour burst.

Promising

We’ve almost used up all of last year’s wild blueberries from the freezer.  I’m thankful to find wild blueberry blossoms in my yard indicating a bountiful harvest come.  Yum!

 

 

Celebrate!

Three years ago today, we celebrated more than Canada’s Birthday.

Our daughter, Krista married her sweetheart, Scott in a uniquely Canadian way.

Pretty Canadian, eh?

Blueberry Blossoms

Blueberries are abundant in our ‘neck of the woods’. They are usually ripe for picking mid July through into September. By the looks of the blossoms this spring, it should be a good season!

By the way, this picture was taken from ground level as I lay flat out on the gravel.
