Springtime on the Farm

It seems like words have not been coming to me easily lately so thought you might like to see some pictures of some things here on our 80 acres. Here's our dog Blackie sitting up for Benny.

Here's a BIG bowl of strawberries fresh from the garden. Doesn't look like it but there was over a gallon of them.

One of my three roses.

Here's Rose with her friend Iris.

This is my big ,old-fashioned, great smelling red rose that my sweet stepmother rooted and gave to me several years ago. She could work magic with any kind of flowers!

The Iris Sisters....blondes both of them!

The coral rose......before Duke.

The coral rose....after Duke !! He was digging for a mole!

My mole-digging 14-year-old Duke!

Thanks for taking the tour!

In answer to your questions, I have not done a lot of cooking with the strawberries. I put sugar on them and then put in bags and freeze to use later in cakes or with ice cream. I usually keep out a pint or so in the fridge for us to eat with ice cream while they're fresh. I did fix a strawberry cake for one of the girls at Sav-A-Life who had a birthday. And it's not me that has the green thumb....it's hubby! I can't grow a thing! ha
