it is practically impossible to convey the bounty of
the wild blueberry season in black creek/matheson township this year.
each spring visit to the cottage, we carefully watch the berry bushes, blossoms, and the weather
in order to predict what sort of harvest may be in store.
even so, this year seems to have taken everyone by surprise...
the hillsides are simply laden with blue,
the fruit is large, sweet, and juicy, making for fast picking;
and the picking pails fill nearly as quickly as the bowls empty.
