Aside from a couple of days here and there, I've not spent much time blog visiting. It's been about ten days since I've spent any time up at our new place as I'm still focused on getting the old place ready for sale. We came close last week. The house hasn't been listed yet but my agent had someone in mind whom she thought might be interested. There was a conditional offer which was accepted but he backed out in the end. Back to the drawing board.
Except for this preamble, this post was prepared a while back. I hope you enjoy.
Oh! `darkly, deeply, beautifully blue', / As someone somewhere sings about the sky.

A lone blueberry, sitting atop our deck rail, waiting for someone to come along and claim it.
And this sweet chickadee obliged. But that berry is far too big to fit in its little mouth.
Clever wee thing.
Frank happened to notice our pal, the Great Blue heron resting on the neighbours' raft. He looked this-a-way.
And then flew off to share his magnificence with nearby kayakers.
A young Blue jay waits patiently for mama to return with a morsel of food.
Do you think mama will share her bounty?
I can't complete a blue post without showing you the lovely blue skies, late in the day, over Blueberry Island.
More photos coming up soon.
