I guess that they are the same, first time hearing this term.

Small, dark blue globules, growing in low shrubs. Great for eyes, immunity and tea (leaves).

I guess you mean Vaccinium myrtillus, then. "Blueberries" means a part of the Vaccinium genus (identified by its blue colour, but then it's not a valid taxonomical criterion by itself). "Bilberries" is a part of blueberries that doesn't include most other Vaccinium cyanococcus section and is identified by the blue flesh, as opposed to the white of the fruits of the other plants in the Vaccinium cyanococcus section. And finally, Vaccinium myrtillus is the actual plant.

Green everywhere. Unfortunately, I have a cold since saturday. *Hoping to catch a little compassion*
This changeable weather ... little rain - sunny - heavy rain - hot - cold - very windy - a little warm ... :rolleyes:

Really bad storm and rain here now - reports are coming in about roads flooding etc. I think I'll just snug up in the bed after a hot cup of cocoa. :)

Yesterday it was crazy hot, then it crazily rained (and it is still raining as we speak).

On a related note, take a look at these articles to see the cause of this crazy weather:

Well it's all it's fault anyway, for being the main source of heat... if he'd just move further away... but she wont because it hates us...

The heavy rain in the south of the country caused a lot of flooding, and my small childhood town (Risør) got the most rain of anywhere. Nice today, though.

The Windy City lived up to its name yesterday. I saw a giant metal Road Closed barrier sliding around in the street outside our building. Those things are pretty heavy, but apparently they act like sails in high winds.

Quoted for truth. At least it's not (yet) a torrent and not (yet) a drought.

I'd like some too. The past several days have been sunny and hot over here, though it is slightly cooler today now that the sun is down. The temperature has fallen to a wonderfully refreshing 22 °C, as opposed to last Saturday when it was over 26 °C all night.

Some pictures from this evening...

Well here we go again, I am sitting in the path of Sandy; wondering if they will cancel school tomorrow :beg: or will I have to fight high winds on the way home. 8| However right now it is the calm before the storm.
