I am not a fan of the color blue. I like teal and green. When this time of the year rolls around I’m loving blue. On our little patch of heaven, here in Georgia, we have 25 blueberry bushes. Most of them were here when we purchased the land to build our home several years ago. This time of year, we are out picking in the cool of the day, every morning and evening gallons and gallons of blueberries. We love to share them with friends. We welcome our friends to come pick too. There are so many berries and it is easy picking!
Blueberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber plus they have lots of antioxidants. Eat them raw, with a little milk or put them in a yogurt parfait. Have you ever had a Starbuck’s yogurt parfait? It consists of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and low-fat plain yogurt with granola cereal on top. Yummy! Oh yeah, we have those other berries in our garden too.
When we have so many blueberries we freeze them to use all year. Blueberry pancakes, blueberry pie and blueberry cobbler.Yummm!
I looked around the quilt shop and noticed that I had been purchasing a lot of fabrics with blue. Here is what I found. I guess I like blue more than I thought.
