We enjoyed a lovely day of picking strawberries yesterday!
It was a blessing to be out-of-doors
and to collect so many beautiful berries!
We plan to eat, freeze, eat, and jam them! Yum!!
The children enjoyed filling their buckets...
Five buckets full!!
Big, ripe, juicy, and sweet! Mmmmm!!!
"We are bound by a small,
sometimes magical fruit called the strawberry.
This fruit has the power to make tears dry up,
make friends with enemies, make sick people feel better,
make the elderly feel younger by bringing back
pleasant memories of days gone by,
make acquaintances of strangers,
and above all make little children smile.
What other fruit has that power?"
