Mimi called Saturday. She needed Maggie to come help her pick strawberries. They picked a bunch on Thursday, but there were lots more ready. FRitW and MT weren't about to miss a chance to go to Papa & Mimi's house, so we headed up the hill to pick strawberries.
Wow! There were tons of them! Mimi produced bowls and we set about picking. Two years ago this 'patch' was 4 plants. They have spread so quickly! Last year we went to a pick your own farm to pick, but this year we only need Mimi's Strawberry Patch. If we can keep from eating them all fresh we will make some Strawberry Jam!
Just a bonus: While we were picking we noticed Dad and Mom Bluebird flying back and forth a lot. Look closely at the bird in the middle of the photo - she has a worm in her mouth! Daddy bird is a just above and to the right of her and he had a worm too! The bird house Maggie built for Mimi is on a corner post of the garden, so we tried to be quiet, as they did not appreciate us disturbing their little home! Mimi has been thinking that they may have some baby birds and watching them bring worms back to their home seems to confirm that!
I am a Mom. That is my definition of me. I am Mom to four loud, busy, creative, strong-willed children. My husband is my very best friend and thankfully, just as strongwilled as our kids! Our house is loud, and I mean really loud, and disorganized, but always interesting. We homeschool, craft, play in the dirt alot, and love to travel!
