BlueBerry Muffins


Those fresh blueberries that I picked in July are calling my name (my blog, Day Trippin Petals from the Past, July 2007) . I am going to make up this batch of muffins with the blueberries I froze. As summer winds down, I cannot help but appreciate the bounty that was provided. I think I will call over a friend for some muffins and hot tea on the deck. It's bound to be great day!
