The Blueberries are Red with Embarrassment

What colour would you turn if you hadn't done your job and wanted to go unnoticed?

My blueberry bushes should be embarrassed - they did not produce a single blueberry this summer.

As Head Gardener, I am certainly not going to blame myself, so I blame the soil (not acid enough), the bees (not pollenating enough) and the bushes themselves. 

Much as I don't appreciate their poor performance I do admire their in-your-face fall attitude.

I went out this afternoon thinking I should just pull them out.   As you can see, they decided to end the season by turning fire-engine red.

Now they've made themselves too pretty to toss.

Interesting strategy.
