Blueberries in the making

April 26

Today we played on the deck and in the back yard. I noticed our blueberry plants are moving into their next phase. The petals are gone and what's left of each bud is quickly turning into yes, a blueberry!

I remember seeing the flowers for a moment last year and then the small hard green balls that eventually matured into berries. Today I am seeing the step in between, the flowers becoming the berries!

I hope we get to eat some of these little beauties this year. The birds and squirrels seem to keep very close watch over the developing fruit and know just the day to visit the bushes for a sweet treat.
