My thoughts have turned to blueberries, specifically highbush blueberry bushes, because their leaves are gorgeous. Now, this is the autumn of week after week of stellar fall foliage. Just last week I was noticing the palette of colors on the oaks. Surely, that combined with the shedding of most maple leaves, was the end of brilliant red foliage for 2010.
Then a walk along the shore of Pawtuckaway Lake on Monday revealed still more stunning red color. The wild highbush blueberries continue the color parade into November.
