Blueberry season has officially begun!
Every spare bit of time we have is filled with picking delicious orbs of blue juiciness.
And every spare minute of today will be filled with making jam...
our favorite blueberry lime jam!
Yesterday while picking our 100 young bushes, I happened to spy
this little nest with a single egg.
It is the nest of a house finch.
I had actually noticed the nest in the process of being built this past weekend while picking.
It appears construction is complete with the inside layer being soft horse hair.
I am assuming more eggs will follow.
I will keep watch over this precious little nest and give you updates.
Meanwhile, class continues at the Birdbrain Academy.
One of the three elder guineas has remained outside the dormitory at all times.
It's a good thing, too, as these adolescent birds need a chaperone,
or who knows what tomfoolery they might engage in!
Now, to fire up the stove and get busy making jam.
I'll share the end result with you tomorrow.
