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.

    Yum! Great pick of the Strawberries in hand!

  3. I love strawberries! I have a big bowl in the fridge …. they may have been bought in the supermarket, but they are Scottish strawberries – possibly the finest in the entire universe!!

    That’s so true! When they are warm from the sun, they taste so much better than when they’ve been in the fridge. I’ve got quite a few on my plants this year…just hope they ripen before the slugs and birds get them. Lots of love, Amanda xxx

    It’s been years since I’ve tasted a sun-warmed strawberry and yet I remember the flavor exactly. Something about that warmish soft strawberry flesh and the tart-sweet flavor. Man, I wish our heat here made strawberries happy instead of wilted. Thanks for sharing.

    They look so good – I can nearly taste them from here! 😀

  7. i really think the “simple” things are really so special; what i wouldn’t do to be able to pick my own strawberries and tend to my chickens too! a good friend of mine just finalized the purchase of her home and getting chickens are at the top of the list! 🙂
