First Pickin's


My in-laws brought us the "sweetest" treat today - a bucket full of fresh strawberries right out of the patch. This was the first pickin' of the season from their vines. YUMMMMY!

So after a full day of garden work (after church that is) this was the perfect ending to the day. The delicious strawberries were made even a lil' better with a tad of sugar and drizzled over some vanilla ice cream and a fluffy biscuit. MMM...MMM!
Thanks MiMi and Poppa!

If you can, go find some fresh berries at a "u-pick" farm or maybe visit your local farmers market. Better yet, you might be lucky enough to have some of your very own.

Wishing you a great start to your week!

Wow, the strawberries look so yummy!
I live in the strawberry capital of the US and the world, I think and can you believe that I am allergic to them?
I so wish that I wasn't because looking at yours I am drooling!

What gorgeous pictures! Your camera is great. I may have to save my allowance and lunch money to get one.

I love your new title picture. The colors are reviving. You truly have a great blog and the most colorful one I have yet visited.
