Today the garden chores have slowed down. I got up early since the heat and humidity has come back ...and picked 2 gallons of blueberries. Hubby had to run out to the DILs to get their dog. She had died last night so he brought her home since we have a back hoe and buried her here. She was a big bull dog and DIL didn't want her girls seeing her dead. We have also blanched and frozen the peas we shelled yesterday. Next we plan to put up bread and butter pickles. For those of you who do not know what they are...they are a type of sweet pickle. Then I hope to find some time to work on organizing my studio and hooking on a new rug.

I did want to show you a photo of a baby bird we found. It is a brown thrush baby. We thought it couldn't fly and had fallen out of the nest but when I got close to it with the camera it flew up into our fig tree.

    Do you grow the Blue Berries? Seems like there is an abundance of them for you. I had a friend who had a river in her back yard, and on the banks was nothing but Blackberries. We got in her boat, and picked buckets full. She made jam for me so I could take some home. Oh, was it good.
    Sorry to hear the family dog. I hope the kids can get another one in a while. The baby Thrush looks so grumpy lol. I'm glad it is alright though. Good photos!

    It is so sad when you lose a pet. The picture of the baby bird is so cute. I love bread & butter pickles :) We have had so much hail in the last few days I'm not sure how much garden will come back to put up for fall. I guess we will just have to wait and see!

    Sorry to hear about the dog. It's hard (especially for kids) to lose a pet.

    I just love B&B pickles...haven't had them in years. Enjoy!
