Those are nice looking berries. We're in our prime time here in the Pacific NW and now that our weather is back to sunshine and upper 70's to low 80's, I'm looking forward to our Mt. Hood Strawberries. There just like eating strawberry candy. Plus Raspberries are ready to and Blueberries are next.

Nooooow it's nice! hahaha

I was working in Seattle off and on from Oct through January and I think I saw the sun 3 times in 40 some days there.
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there

we've had 6 blueberry bushes over 30 years old that are still hanging in there and producing better blueberries then I've ever had anywhere else! ... the birds get them so we gotta have a net over the top and fence all around, not producing close to as much as they used to but still a good bunch and a nice treat every year.

I do have to say that the best blueberry I've eaten are the wild Maine blueberries unbelievable flavor from such a small berry.

I don't have much of a green thumb, but these allium seem to be thriving. The catnip is coming up again too, and the cats are already attacking it.

Yes and they are very cheap round here...I eat them everyday in a smoothy with banana, rice milk, yogurt and spiralina. Our family goes through 3 lbs a week!

I tried sunflowers for the first time this year. Here's a pic of the dog by them.

The roses aren't really producing like they did a couple of years ago.
