pick of the crop

it is foraging season in the north. blueberries, raspberries and pincherries, sugarplums and labrador tea. there is a profusion this year, and we harvested some of the glory at the cottage last bare feet yummily perfumed by the resinous scent of sweetfern and crisp wintergreen.
pincherry shrub

pincherries, enough for three jars of rosy pink jelly.

i know, i know, so where are the baby pictures...
it is also still bug season.
