saskatoons in bloom

I've been so focussed on getting my veggies in that I didn't notice that the saskatoon bushes are blooming. Of course, the bushes were put in by my mom and dad. That's one of the best thing about living in their house - having something tangible appear each spring to remind me of their hard work and love.

Looks like there will be a good crop of saskatoons this year. There never was enough for a pie when Mom and Dad were still with us. Or, maybe there would have been if we wouldn't have stood around visiting in the garden, stuffing handfuls of the berries into our mouths as we talked.

Good times. Good memories.
