Saskatoon serviceberry

Besides all of the different looks to these blossoms they have a special significance to me: in a month or so they will turn into one of my favorite berries. Many times over the years, while on long hikes in the mountains, they have provided delicious meals on the trail. They are large, plentiful and wonderful tasting. Unlike with other berries which one might eat one at a time, the proper way to eat Serviceberries is to put a whole handful into your mouth at once and it will completely flood your mouth with flavor.
