Feast your eyes on my Japanese Blueberries !!!! Last year I planted  four   blueberry bushes  crossing my fingers that they might grow in this unpredictable climate. 

 On June  first, a year later,  I left for a 6 week visit to Canada . I noticed that there were three  surviving plants, but  NO  buds... Saddly, I had given up hope on the tasty little morsels.( Sigh)

It is now July 2011 and the yard is a jungle with so much undergrowth to explore. I have lilies, petunias, hydrangea and BLUEBERRIES ( hurrah) peeking out into the rainy season... So I better collect those little fat berries before they get wet and completely saturated. I wonder if I will have enough for a pie !!!! ( Yummy)
