Highbush Cranberry---July




My intentions were to shoot a new photo on the first of every month beginning in June but as you may know Mother Nature has not been very kind to us here in the Northeast this last month. July 1st was a rainy, nasty day; as was July 2nd and July 3rd. So, today, July 4th is not only Independence Day it is also a Chamber of Commerce weather day!


So here is what our Highbush Cranberry is looking like today, July 4th, as Lucy and I scope it out. The flowers were gone soon after the photo at the beginning of June and we now have lovely green berries as the picture below shows.

I love the dog's cameo appearance in the picture. It shows just how big that cranberry bush (?) is. I have never eaten fresh cranberries. When it gets time for picking, you need to give us some recipes with your photos.

P. S. ::reminder:: Love story in the works yet?

Alex, good point that Lucy does give an idea of just how big the bush is. And apologies for the quality of the photo. My 'good' camera is being repaired! Don't know what happened but suddenly got an error message....on a camera!!

And, yes, there is a story about Paul in the works but since his birthday is in a couple weeks, I thought I'd save it for then. So stayed tune, my friend.

That is a beautiful bush - I've never seen one of those. And thank you to Lucy for giving us perspective on the size!

I like this shot, we don't get cranberry bushes in FL. Of course we don't get snow either so it all works out.
