Dreaming of Berries

Beautiful Salal Flowers.

On a recent walk in Friday Harbor, Constance spotted a number of harbingers of sweetness yet to come.  The Salal plant has flowers that look like clusters of little wax bells. They turn into blue coloured berries that are a little tart and chewy.

Persistent Frutilla.

This little wild strawberry plant had made its’ home in a little crack of rock….unfortunately the fruits won’t be ready for about another month!

Nearly Ripe Salmonberries.

Remembering Last Year’s Berries

Last year’s crop was a perfect  Hitty-sized feast…she hopes the Salmonberries in our garden will have a good crop again this year – we’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out.
