Ripe berries!

It's huckleberry season!

I tried a few. They're sweet and juicy now.

Tiny red jewels in an emerald and lime-green forest.

And I saw my first Saskatoons of this year.

Serviceberry, aka Saskatoon, almost ripe.


  1. "Serviceberry...what an odd name", I thought as I read your post last week. I did a quick web search to see what were the differences with blueberries, expecting that I'd never come across one in real life. That very evening, as I walked past a nearby school, I took a closer look at the planted shubbery that I had assumed all were blueberry bushes. I tasted one of the berries, and they had the dryish texture that I read about. I then read the tag - "Serviceberry". Coincidence? Or just observational selection bias?

  2. Sometimes it seems that just knowing the name of something makes you able to see it where before it was invisible.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
