this summer we harvested the very first blueberries from our back yard after years of watching them leaf out in the spring, grow taller all summer, and die back in the fall, without ever producing more than a few fragile white blossoms that always fell to the ground before anything like a blueberry appeared. this year was different, and now our plants provide the full color spectrum. the fall leaves give us R O Y G, and the berries fill in the B I V.
