A Trip to the Strawberry Patch
That, my dear friends, is the first strawberry of the year from our little backyard, and as soon as this photo was snapped, it was popped into my mouth. There is nothing quite like a sun-warmed strawberry to make my day start out right.
Things are really starting to explode in our tiny yard, including the rabbit greens' beds, for which I am extra thankful due to the recent addition of Bun #2, otherwise known as Blueberry, or Blueb, for short.
Rabbits are small but they eat a lot and our rabbits only eat organic -- like every single mammal in this house, whether skin or fur suited.
We are in the middle of Marcy having a four day weekend, and we are likely sitting out back, near that strawberry patch, with brains turned down to low and simmer, perhaps with a drink in hand and binoculars to the face.
I hope everyone is having a Stupendous Long Weekend and that many such strawberries come into your life over the coming Summer months. (I apologize to you Southern Hemisphere readers...the sun has already begun its yearly frying of my brain and strawberries are all that I care to think about...)
