#250 Blueberries


Yes, I know, these are not real blueberries, but they are blue and berries nonetheless.

    1. I won’t, don’t worry! I’m too careful to eat anything in the garden, not even apples or strawberries and such. It’s filthy, insects have been crawling on it and anyway, I prefer chocolate. That doesn’t grow in the garden.


        1. You’re wise, I should eat my fruit, but I think I won’t. Chocolate is much more better and scientists say it’s healthy too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ By the way, how is your holiday going? Was it on Saturday that you were supposed to leave on holiday? Hope you’re enjoying yourself!


          1. Oh, I’m really confused!! But I told you before that I’m a confused person ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But wow, cool, a week to go then! Did you order a new camera?? Awww!! A profi camera? A Nikkon or something else? Hope you’ll post about your new “baby” when it arrives! The car drive will be fine, I’ll send you some slivovitz to make it more bearable! ๐Ÿ˜‰


  1. We don’t have blueberries in Mauritius,but often hear about them.
    At one moment I thought these were the real ones!
    I would ask if these can be eaten,but already got the answer in the comments above!
    On a side note,are these from your garden??


    1. Ah, you don’t have blueberries, poor dear! The actual blueberries look very similar to this, of course, it’s difficult to tell from a close-up image. I think I took this shot in the street — this a common decorative shrub used in public places. We don’t have blueberries in the garden, but other than that, we’ve got a lot: strawberries, raspberries, plums, apples, lots of vegetables and whatnot…


          1. I’ve seen! I got email notifications for Pininterest. Apparently, you cannot set up email notifications for Flickr, at least I haven’t come across this option. Anyway, I usually check all the social media daily or each other day, it’s part of my morning ritual while drinking coffee.


          2. Ok, as to blogs, I follow about 25 of them, I’m rather selective. Now I’m however thinking of being less selective and trying to keep in touch more. I guess you follow more blogs, right? I’ll need to explore your blogroll if you have any?


          3. I don’t have a blogroll, but am actually thinking of cutting down, it all gets a bit too much after a while. I am spending too much time reading/commenting, then no time posting LOL…or I am but it is taking up too much of my day and I end up feeling bad if I don’t read everyones posts and some posts are looooong..hehe..I need to have better time management skills…


          4. I can see what you mean. I’m just reading your post about it. I’ll comment on your post later when I get down to it… I’m having similar feelings right now because the time I spent online is time I should spent on my studies and work, which should be my priority. In short: as long as your online habits don’t interfere with your real life engagements, I’m sure you’re perfectly fine. This much can’t be said of me entirely ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
