Should've taken a picture. Didn't think of it. Serviceberries are coming into bloom and are very pretty.
[Serviceberries have been documented at least since Colonial times. Serviceberries are one of the first plants to bloom in the spring, with beautiful white flowers blooming shortly after the ground thaws. Serviceberries are native to every U.S. state except Hawaii. Technically serviceberries are related to the apple, but they have more of a sweet berry taste. Serviceberries ripen in June in temperate areas and may ripen as late as mid July in more northern states. In some places serviceberries are called juneberries, because they often ripen in early June. The fruit is only about an inch long and turns a deep purple when ripe, with vestiges of the flower's blooms still on the ends of the fruit.

I rode only 10 miles but my brother rode 16, so he's happy. It was his second time on his new hybrid. He hasn't ridden in years, so I think I'm encouraging him.
Lovely day and not much wind. So bright and sunshiny. Love it!
