Instead of waiting for winter to come to me, I went out and met it…kind of like grabbing the bull by the horns, I guess. 🙂 Anyway, it is supposed to snow tonight here in town, so I’m not that far ahead of the game. On that note, Happy first day of Autumn!
and got to work, picking little blueberries from their ground bushes. They are shriveled and super juicy now (a little late in the season!), and I was only picking a handful of very squished berries every few minutes. I had to come up with a better way to pick them–so I just took the berry-laden branches (there are still so many berries left!) and threshed them into my bucket. I wonder how big lumbering bears can pick and eat this little morsels?
Can’t beat this view for berry-picking breaks!
Yes those are berry stained knees!!! I forgot about kneeling down, I was so focused on threshing berries….
I saw a few seagulls. The gulls hang out in the lake while the salmon are spawning, to eat the salmon after they die. The lake is the spawning place for the northernmost run of sockeye salmon in the United States!
