Blueberry Barrens of Deblois Maine

Scenery while driving along Route 193 in Deblois today.


A close up of a row of tiny blue camps used to house migrant workers during blueberry season. 



This location is owned by the Jasper Wyman & Son Company, the largest U.S. grower, packer and marketer of blueberries. 



Henri pulled over to the side of the road several times for me today. 


One of our favorite autumn rides.  


For when an autumn Nor'easter comes through and blows almost all the pretty leaves right off the trees.  That's when we head for the place where we know the color is still wildly brilliant.

Amazing color and photos. We discovered when we moved to WA that blueberry bushes have fabulous color in the fall - we didn't know that before. But our blueberry bushes are tall - sometimes taller than 6 feet - very wide and have scrumptious blueberries as big across as nickels. They make the most amazing pies and muffins - though I do chop them a bit for the muffins so you don' have just one big blueberry in the muffin. LOL

How sweet of Henri to stop for photos - Don does that too - and he can even anticipate when I'm going to ask for a stop.

Just amazing! I love the contrast of the red blueberries in the foreground and the blue mountains and sky in the background. What a stunning piece of earth at this time.

Awesome! LOVE those beautiful colorful photos...makes one dream of driving where you are...
My 19 yr. old son wanted to know the type of camera you have. I referred him to your blog, so he will probably be lurking around to see your fabulous shots... He has just gotten into the joy of photography and gotten himself a camera. Doing pretty good too. He is in awe of your photography.
Thanks for sharing the beauty of Maine with us die hard Southerners...Looks like I may be converting to a Mid-Westerner!!!
Hugs to you bloggy sis!

I had no idea that blueberry plants turned crimson after season. The colors of the fields, bogs and mountains are amazing.

Fantastic colour - I had no idea blueberry shrubs looked like that. Reminds me of lavender fields in France in a different colour.
