A Gorgeous Garden

After we left my in-laws house, we had the chance to stop by my Hubby’s Aunt’s house. She has the most spectacular garden where lots of fruits, herbs and veggies are flourishing. I was completely jealous as by mid May, she already has so many things thriving. Here our last frost date is June 1st, which means nothing is ready, or even in the ground yet. She has the most gorgeous chickens, which the kids loved watching as they scattered around the yard. They had me dreaming of having a few chooks of my own in the next couple of years. The babe stood and watched the chickens for quite a while, shame we just missed the egg collecting. Next we headed over to the strawberry patch. Yum, the girls had such fun searching for ripe berries. We don’t have strawberries planted this year, but next year I have high hopes for having a huge patch to go searching in. Is there anything better than a handful of ripe strawberries eaten within moments of being picked, still warm from the sun? Nope, I don’t think so.
