Saskatoon's In Bloom

Amelanchier alnifolia ... aka, the Saskatoon!  If you haven't heard of it before, the Saskatoon is a woody, fruit bearing perennial shrub native to our prairies and other North American Interior points.  I like to call it the prairie's blueberry!  And now is a great time to scout out Saskatoon patches as they are in full bloom.  If you love pie or jam or just a handful of fresh berries ... these are not only delicious but healthy to!  Lucky for me, I have Saskatoons in my garden, and know of many, many wild patches!  We will definitely be picking berries this summer!
