Blueberries, Anyone?
















We have a blueberry farm out here in Temecula, not far from the house. We met my son, his wife and their two boys, my grandson’s Ben and Luke one lovely Sunday afternoon. Ben’s three, and Luke’s fourteen months. We had a great time picking blueberries, and there was a tractor which suited the boy’s fine. One of Ben’s first words was “tractor.” I made blueberry coffee cake with some of our blueberries and it was a hit. A good time was had by all.

Little boys pretty much always like tractors, I think.

Wonderful pictures!

Oh blueberries...mmmmm

Seems early for that fruit though. Maybe the season is very different out there but here they're a later summer berry. That coffee cake is making me drool :-)

I cannot wait for our pick-your-own blueberries farm to open for the season. My daughter loves to go, but I am sure I enjoy it more.
