a mess of berries

It was a good weekend.
unfettered thrifting
a new to me Filter Queen vacuum
a fenced garden
 a newly discovered swimming hole not 7 minutes away
peonies, daisies and buttercups
berry picking
working horses in the hay field
stained fingertips
sticky, happy, sleepy children
Sun warmed berries
the year’s first sunburn
a birthday trailer
sun soaked laundry
one blessed and charmed life
Yes it was one lovely, productive weekend.  Now, if you need me, you can find me in the kitchen hulling and freezing a mess of strawberries for the winter months.
P.S.  as you can see I am having way too much fun making new headers.  The novelty should where off soon.
go gently + be wonderful

    Great pictures! Those strawberry fields look like ours do – full of daisies, no strawberry plants to be seen (a very good sign that herbicides weren't used either!) Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.
