Strawberry picking tomorrow!


Tomorrow morning John and I have decided to take a break from the whole moving unpacking thing and we are going strawberry picking with the girls and their men! I love fresh strawberries!! I can just picture sitting on the patio on Sunday morning before Church eating a bowl of freshly picked strawberries-life will be good! After the berry picking we will be stopping at a little local restaurant for lunch and then off to The Garden Gate. The Garden Gate is run souly by this older woman (she is pushing 80 but looks like she is in her early 70's). She has about 5 greenhouses and grows all of her own plants. I love to buy from her because #1 I like to help local growers and #2 she has the best plants around. I wonder what "trouble" I'll get into there tomorrow!! After all the fun, John and I will head on back to hang all of our paintings and photos. It is really feeling like home these days!

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! Enjoy!!

It sounds like a wonderful weekend is planned Sherri! I bought some South Carolina straberries from a road side vender the other day. Yummy!

I am so jealous!!! I love fresh strawberries. We have some places in the country here that you can go berry picking and it's always lots of fun.

Have fun! I love the scent of freshly picked strawberries. I miss the Strawberry Fests in California.

That sounds like the perfect weekend. I would rather be buying plants than raking out this muck. Have a wonderful Mother's day.

The house looks nice and bright. Sounds like you had a nice mom's day.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
