It is hard to believe that Independence Day has already come and gone and that summer is officially in full swing. In our house, July means that the Tour de France is a mainstay on the television.  And it is a Hurt tradition to fill the house with sunflowers as the cyclists make their way through Provence.

This morning Mattie Windsor and I decided to truly celebrate the season by heading out to Reich’s Blueberries to pick our own.

Blueberries are a little late this year due to all of the rain, so today was actually the first day they were available to pick in Winston-Salem.

We both became quite skilled at seeking out the ripe berries.

And snuck a few samples along the way.

And even managed to bring home a few blueberrries for Jed too.
