Daily Pics #165.

Good morning and Happy Saturday to everyone! Hard to believe another week has gone already. Plus that means only 10 days to go. Time goes so fast, except when you want it to of course. It is another nice sunny morning here, still a bit on the chilly side, but warmer than it has been at least. And that is definitely a big plus for me! And warmer weather is returning this week, and that is another big plus. The gulls were here bright and early again, but it will be that way for a few weeks. That’s something else coming up soon, the longest day of the year is coming up in only a week’s time. Then the days start getting shorter, such a sad thought really.

But summer is here, actually, for us, summer begins June 1. But what’s a few days anyway? The birds are really singing this morning, that phoebe is so close but hiding among the bushes somewhere, out of reach of my camera unfortunately. Back when I was in my teens we always had phoebes nesting in our garage each year, twice a summer actually, raising four young each time. I didn’t have a camera to take pics of them at that time so I keep trying now to get a pic of one. One of these days it will happen. And there is a “black-throated green warbler” singing so nicely. Another one that is hard to see among the thick tangle of bushes out back. Time for another cup of coffee and a look at some flowering bushes…

In this first pic above we have flowers on the chokecherry bush. They have that name for a reason too, if you try to eat too many at a time. But they do make a most delicious jelly and also syrup for pancakes! Definitely my second favorite after crabapple jelly.

And in the above pic is the Red Osier dogwood flower. They are not particularly common, but can still be found around most places in our area. These flowers are from a bush right out back. I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  2. Love the pics ! Chokecherries I use when I make cranberry jelly and crabapple jelly…very tasty…pin cherries can be used if chokecherries are not found …oh…blueberries are good with chokecherries as well…β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈπŸ˜€πŸ˜Ί

    • Yes, crabapples are good with chokecherries, especially if the chokecherries are over ripe, helps them to jell better and stretches things a bit too since chokecherries are not too plentiful at times. Have a good evening!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ΊπŸŒ™
