I am continually grateful that we have so much space for the children to play in. Considering that we live in a condo in southern California, it is an amazing gift.
The strawberry patch is a few years old now and I can barely keep up with the production. Today I cooked 6 cups into syrup for pancakes (mmm!) and still had plenty leftover for nibbling!
Thomas has discovered that he can pick his own strawberries and send them directly from the patch to his mouth. Unfortunately he has not yet mastered not eating the stems and the occasional slug. We're working on that part. :)
My flower garden is so pretty it rather defies my ability to describe it. Take a look:
And while I weed and water and trim, the boys are loving the fact that it is hot enough to play in the pool!
