200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

I normally try to limit posts to a single subject, but there are a bunch of little things I want to show. Here goes...
Here's the first bouquet of the season riding to the office with me this morning. I don't care if Dame's Rocket is a weed. It's pretty, and it's coming with me to the office.
Blue Flag Iris isn't the only kind of Iris I have. I've got these bearded yellow ones with both purple and blue, and this pale white/yellow kind.
I didn't get my act together to protect the apple trees from plum curculio before they came out of dormancy, so I shouldn't be surprised to see this curculio smiley mark on most of the new apples. I'm pleasantly surprised to see so many apples forming because I had multiple days of hard frost and snow after the blossoms came out and I thought there would be more frost damage. It won't stop me from using these apples for eating and for cider this fall, and I'll try to do a better job next year against the plum curculio.
