Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

using the WiFi out on the sidewalk at the library!

This morning, Batman and I drove up to Elmore Roots Nursery to buy native and hardy lowbush blueberry plants. It's the first time we'd been up there, and it's magical!
These pictures did not come out very well, it was rainy and bright at the same time (?), so I guess my focus was confused...but wanted you to get a sense of the place. We have a high bush plant at the house already, but want to get dreams of a real berry patch up and running. I guess all those summer visits to Franny on Mount Desert Island has spoiled me for the tiny berries! 
Yesterday, Gretta and I stopped at two spots on the Open Studio Weekend, and I will post about those two artists tomorrow. On the way home we stopped at the Hunger Mt Food Co-op for groceries and could not resist taking this picture of a car in the parking lot! 

We are headed back up the hill to garden. We are having ALMOST too much fun. 

Hope you are too.


  1. That nursery looks like a wonderful place! Those low bush blueberries were the understory ground cover at Quisisana where my family spent a wonderful week for quite a few summers...sometimes they were ripe and sometimes they weren't. It surprised how many people stopped to ask what we were picking and were we sure they were edible! (oh no, they're not edible, please don't pick them...just leave them all for me *g*)

    I'm sure there's a story behind the car with the playhouse on top. I'm looking forward to your report on the Open Studio weekend, too.

  2. Ha! Like your story about the edibility of those berries!
