Working Weekend

I have been so busy this weekend doing some paid employment. Embee and I do this every year. So if there any English bloggers out their who have forgotten to post off their Electoral Registration forms spare a thought for those of us who are chasing them up and be nice to the person visiting you. We are only doing a job and we don't need abuse like I got yesterday from some chap who objected to having his name on the register! I didn't take it the heart and I let him have his little rant and I got his name so he will be on the Electoral Roll despite the fact he was adamant he hadn't ever filled in a form and had no intention of ever doing so!

My Blueberry bushes are such an amazingly beautiful red colour at the moment I thought I would share a photo. It reminded me of the colours of the trees I saw in New England a couple of years back.

PS I'm delighted that Andy Murray won the Madrid Masters Series

I can identify Chris. Here in the U.S. it's touchy to talk about politics as I found out when out to dinner with friends last night. It's so close to our presidential elections that everyone is a bit testy.

Are your blueberry bushes the ornamental or edibile variety? Either way I'd forgotten how lovely the foliage is.

BTW, I'm being lazy about Fun Monday this week and not writing a new post. However, if you'd to read my account of a "normal" travel day getting to and around Amsterdam, stop by.

Hmmmmmmmm, beautiful and colorful plants. You say "blueberry bushes" they actually HAVE blueberries? Edible blueberries?

Happy Fun Monday.
