"Ripe strawberries, Ripe"*

Sister B and the Sweetpea went strawberry picking recently, and I was gifted with some of the "fruits" of their labors. (HA HA HA!) This was my first time eating native strawberries, but it is not going to be my last!  (I know, I don't know how that has happened; I have never been apple picking either which is downright scandalous. )

I have pretty much been eating them on their own, but I include some of them in scones I baked the other night...yummy!

"Inch by inch, row by row Gonna make this garden grow"*

The volunteers have been hard at work to get the Walnut Hill Rose Garden ready for the Rose Garden Festival, which was this past Saturday. I have been logging hours up there weeding and pruning (although not as many as Sister K), but I didn't make it to the party because I was too busy working in my own yard. (I seriously need a grounds team.) But the hard work paid off and the roses looked amazing for the event. Here are some snaps I took on Thursday evening, just before the drizzle turned into proper rain.
