The Saskatoon Berries are finished blooming. I am trying to get the yard in shape so that there are some flowers when you all come and visit. I picked up my begonias today as they love the front steps. With the hot weather it seems that we are late planting but it is probably the same as last year but I'll bet you are all finished with your bedding plants.

I wanted to say that the banana muffins with Saskatoon berries added are Fabulous! My soon to be son-in-law loved them and so did the rest of us. They are really moist.

The recipe is my mother-in-laws and I use it all the time for banana muffins but this is the first time I have added Saskatoon berries. Why did I wait so long? The Recipe is simple:

Saskatoon Berry Banana Muffins

1 1/3 cups of flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, pinch of salt: Mix together.

3 large bananas mashed, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 beaten egg: Mix together and add to flour mixture, then add 2 cups of Saskatoon berries.

Put into muffin cups (I use the parchment paper cups, they just peel right off) and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Check as you might need a couple of minutes more with the berries added.

I haven't seen any baby ducks on the ponds yet. I see the male mallard gobbling up all the bugs on the pond. Hope those are mosquitoes that he is eating.

We are expecting a semi load of bark mulch for between the rows of Saskatoons, the old mulch is breaking down and the weeds are trying to take over. Plus if we ever get some rain we don't want it to be muddy for you. That is all for today, I will try to come up with some news.
