Raindrops on roses

So blueberry picking got delayed, because we had a delightful morning reminiscent of our Midwest years – thunder, lightning and occasional cloudbursts! Such weather is not common here in the Willamette Valley, and I miss it. However, we did NOT want to be the tallest items in the big blueberry field, so Rick and Brian ended up picking late in the afternoon while I drove back from the wedding of our friend. (Rick was on call, and the wedding was too far away for him to be able to respond to emergencies.)

Instead of picking blueberries before the wedding, I took raindrop photos, worked on a client's newsletter, skeined the yarn I plyed early in the Tour (above), and picked out more fiber from my stash to spin as soon as I ply the singles in yesterday's post. It's called "Ty's Mountain Berries," so I guess I did pick some berries, after all! heh

That's it for now from . . .

You definitely don't want to be the tallest thing in a blueberry patch. Unfortunately, our blueberry orchard had a fatality from a lightning strike back in June.

Lovely colors in Ty's Mountain Berries. And lovely raindrops on roses, too.

What beautiful fiber - I love the colors! I love that weather, too. Especially being able to see the storm rolling in...and rolling out!
