Bailey's Berry Patch

We loaded up bright and early and took the road north.

After an hour and a half of Tim McGraw tunes and solar panel discussions, we reached our destination.
Bailey's Berry Patch

Buckets were handed out and for some, the competition began.

For others, it wasn't a competition.
Just enjoyment.

The enjoyment of the plopping sound the berries made as they were dropped into the bucket.

The enjoyment of forever capturing the perfect berry.

The enjoyment of witnessing nature at it's best.

Once our berries were bagged, we headed back home.
Hot and tired, but happy.

Happily contemplating blueberry lemonade, blueberry tarts and blueberry preserves.

Alisa, I could almost smell the blueberries from here. I followed your link and it looks like a wonderful place to go pick berries. I picked up a half-flat of blackberries this past week and made jam - yummy.

Oh boy, how fun. I have never picked a blueberry.


Alisa, this is such a fun post! I love your photos and the promise of what you'll make with your pickins. I saw Giada's show Saturday where she made lemonade with a simple syrup, lemonade concentrate and pureed berries...mmmmmm. ~ Angela
