    • Ahhh…. the obvious downside to having so many wonderful birds around? I’ve been lucky, but I’m wondering if that’ll last as the bush continues to grow and possibly attract more birds.


  1. I’ve been reading about planting blueberry bushes but didn’t realize they had such lovely blooms on them. And you, dear Gunta, have created such lovely macros. 🙂


    • Thank you Mikel. Sure… I’ll take all the ‘likes’ I can get! I guessed by the name that we share some roots. And thanks for visiting and getting to the likes and especially the comments.


  2. Lovely macros Gunta. How wonderful to be able to pick your own blueberries. They’re not native to these shores and it’s only in recent years that you’ve been able to find them in the stores but I’m sure people will be growing them now. I’ll have to see next time I visit the garden centre. 🙂


    • Thanks Chilli. Blueberries really seem to like our soil (clay and acidic) and our climate (apparently much like yours). They’re my favorite berry and pretty much carefree. My one bush is still considered quite young (perhaps five years), but each year it’s been producing more berries. I’m thinking of adding some more.


    • Thanks Charlie. Seems like spring has certainly arrived. I just hope we don’t get one of them surprise freezes that wipes out all the buds that are popping out. It’s been a really mild winter this year.


    • I’ll have to count! 😀 I’ll refer to this post as the marker for the first blossom I noticed. I know raspberries come first in the cycle, but can’t remember just when.


      • That was a trick question! We have to know when to plan the harvest so we are very up on grape flowering 😉 Curious to know if there is a set time for other soft fruit or whether it is always a question of weather!


        • My grapes are still begging to be staked… poor things. I inherited them with the house and haven’t quite figured out what to do about it. I’ve looked up books and stuff on the internet on the subject, but my mind just doesn’t see to grasp the concept.
