Up, Up and Away Over the St. Croix River

As seen while traveling from Hudson, Wisconsin to Minnesota. There were three of these balloons in the air when I took this photo. The other two were out of sight by the time I pulled off the road to snap this picture.

It’s blueberry season and the pickings are good right now. The blueberry is one of the few fruits that are native to North America. The Northeast Native American tribes revered blueberries and the elders of the tribe named them “star berries” due to the shape of a perfect five-point star blossom at the end of each blueberry.

Blueberries, also known as “star berries”, are ready to pick and eat.

Blueberries can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways: plain, in cereals, in pancakes and waffles, on ice cream, in pies, in muffins and scones, in a salad, in a smoothie, etc. I recently picked my own blueberries at Blueberry Fields of Stillwater. They’re easy to pick and it’s a good way to save money at the grocery store. And these are grown without pesticides, a definite plus!
