We went blueberry picking

IMG_0385


Last night. And it was completely stupendous. We have the most delectable, organic blueberry farm right across the street. We know, we are lucky little birds. The weather was perfect for blueberry harvesting as there was an enormous-looking thunderstorm rolling in. I adore weather like that. Most people run for shelter. I like to soak up the wind in my hair and breathe in the smell of rain. Delicious. It also meant a dreamy 70 degrees. Considering the fact that it hasn't dipped below 85 for the past few days {or nights}, it was positively chilly. Good gracious it was wonderful! We stayed till the last possible moment and The Big Red Wagon whisked us away, along with our loot bags full of lucious blue goodness, just as the rain drops started to fall. Hope you had a stupendous Friday evening as well!
Love,
Ramsey

These look amazing! Blueberry picking is one of the best things in the world. I love sticking fresh blueberries in the freezer for an hour and then munching on them!

"I like to soak up the wind in my hair and breathe in the smell of rain". The moments before a storm really are magical.

I'm glad to hear that there is someone besides me that loves the smell in the air right before a thunderstorm.

And I'm very jealous of your blueberries.

yum, blueberries! i AM jealous of the fact that you live across the street from a blueberry farm.

and you remind me of my mother in so-cal when you say 70 is "positively chilly" - it's funny because ever since i moved to san francisco, i consider that HOT! lol.

Why don't we have farm where you are allowed to go blueberry picking or strawberry picking or any berries picking!? So jaleous! When I was little I used to go to the woods where they grow in the wild. They make terrible stains! x
