Photohunters: Breakfast

The photohunters theme is breakfast this week. Both of my breakfast shots are old shots which I may have used on my blog for some other purpose before.The blueberries were off of my bushes which sadly were damaged by our past drought. I used to have loads of blueberries in the summer for breakfast, pies, and for anytime I felt like picking and eating them. Although the drought ended the blueberry bushes didn't recover very well.The second shot was a weekend breakfast and I remember thinking it was pretty enough to photograph which I did, although the light wasn't great.

Snap2Days - I have a parallel lives PH post there with SabineM.

where participants post on Saturday.


I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Fruits for breakfast are great, light for the tummy and packed with lots of vitamins!

Blueberries are my faves too. I have not met someone who didn't love blueberries. Are they plentiful and reasonably priced where you are?

Happy weekend. Stay well.

Sue said...

Your breakfast looks pretty good to me. I did not have any decent breakfast shots so had to compromise.

juliana said...

Leslie said...

I love blueberies! I am going to put a can ot them on my shopping list and make muffins. :)

I'm getting hungry again...LOL

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. To answer the question about whether blueberries were plentiful in my area. There are quite a lot of growers but they are pretty expensive. Fresh ones where I live are usually harvested around July (a little earlier in the eastern part of my state) and by August they are pretty much done. I've been lucky to have blueberry bushes that I could pick from at home since they are expensive. Sad that after 20 years they were severely damaged by drought but I did get 20 years of harvests from them so I guess I'm lucky.

Blur Mommy said...

So sorry to hear about your blueberry bushes. I wish I have one at home. My girl loves blueberries.

Mar said...

I would most definetely enjoy having breakfast with you, Carver!!
Great shots, great b'fast!

Great, that's healthy breakfast. Lighter than what we have here for breakfast. Most indian breakfasts are heavy like parathas, sheera.. Only idlis are light food.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Carver --

Ooo, love blueberries -- to think you used to have so much to eat for free... On a happier note: agree with you that the breakfast in the second picture was worth photographing. :)

Heart of Rachel said...

I've never tried fresh blueberries before. I'm sorry that your blueberries suffered because of the drought. Hope the next batch will be better.

The second plate looks like a healthy assortment.

ramblingwoods said...

That is a beautiful looking breakfast and unlike mine as no cat fur in it...Have a good weekend Carver!!

witsandnuts said...

Wow your breakfast is certainly healthier than mine was today. But then I don't normally have breakfast...just juice and coffee.

Oh the blueberries look so good. And the other shot is fantastic too!!

You need to wrap some pancake batter around those blue berries, happy hunting

Pat said...

Mmmm...fresh blueberries! Sorry you lost the bushes.

Happy Weekend.

Aileni said...

Your second pic shows Breakfast not far removed from Dragonstar's.
Mostly, I need coffee, the food bit is just to soak up the emptiness.

June said...

Looks healthy and appetizing!

marcia@joyismygoal said...

That is My kind of breakfast

Cindy said...

One year we bought my husband some blueberry bushes for Father's Day. We had no sooner got them planted and one of our boys mowed the lawn- and the blueberry bushes. "I thought they were weeds!"
So, two years ago I bought hubby some more blueberry bushes. We are going to have blueberries if it kills us. Got one planted and the neighbors dog came straight over as if it was calling her and ate it off. Nothing left but a forlorn little shredded twig.
I kept the remaining one in the house for the winter and in the spring set it back outside in the hopes of getting it planted somewhere safely. Here comes the dog again. Nothing left but a forlorn little shredded twig. I didn't think it was worth planting and left it on the patio in its' bucket of dirt. This fall I noticed that a shoot had come up from it and looked quite healthy. I brought it back in the house. I fear for it's life come spring...
Here's Breakfast!

Emzkie said...

wow.. thats your breakfast? i would never get full with that. hehehe.. =)

Carin said...

Both look like very healthy breakfasts. Methinks I should be putting some fruit in my breakfast too.

Happy weekend.

Lee said...

That looks good enough to eat. :0) Nice job with the theme, Carver.

Patricia said...

Love blueberries, but they don't grow well this far south. Love fruit for breakfast, too. Thanks for stopping by to have breakfast at Pollywog Creek, Carver, and have a wonderful weekend.

diXymiss said...

Looks delicious, Carver! My piXies love fresh fruit for breakfast too.

Theresa said...

very healthy breakfast! Love blueberries- my parents used to have a couple of bushes-nothing better than fresh blueberries, now I buy them and freeze them so I can have some in breakfast shakes.

Have a good weekend!

JyLnC said...

Oooh - the blueberies look great and so inviting.

That's too bad about your blueberry bushes, bummer. They are so good with so many things. Your make do shot looks terrific, too, though! Have a great weekend!

They look yummy nonetheless.

PastorMac's Ann said...
