Green, Blue, White, and Blue

Friday Fave Fives from Willow's Cottage.  Short because we're traveling.

1.  A birthday present was ordered in March and delivered this week.  A friend is a potter and made these BLUE bowls:


2.  Commercial blueberry season is over for the year. The Blueberry Lady called to tell us, "Come glean some berries."  So we did.  Sixteen quarts of BLUEberries frozen!


3.  Road trip!  I just can't post photos of California's Central Valley.  Too much drought.  So here are pictures of Mt. Shasta with WHITE SNOW!  That's Southern California's drinking water for next year.  And I love the view.  As I told The Professor, I probably have 100 photos of this mountain.  It never gets old.



4.  Until you've been gone for awhile, you don't realize how much you miss the evergreen trees. Warning:  over the next two weeks, there may be a plethora of GREEN photos at Willow's Cottage.


5.  That first hug.  When you haven't seen your only brother for a year, there's nothing else that comes close to the feeling of rightness and settledness of hugging him.

Yippee for blueberries and evergreen trees. I was able to hug a couple of my brothers yesterday, too. I'm cracking up at Julene's comment!

Number 5 sure did make smile at the thought. I grew up with one sister and always wanted that brother. But I love when I see my grown kids hug. Yummy blueberries filling your freezer are sure to be a blessing over the year! Snow topped mountains...I can't get enough pictures of those either!

Happy travels, Willow! I had a wonderful time camping and got home yesterday afternoon...in time for some rain showers :) xx
PS I did take yarn and crocheted and knitted a bit, too.
