Spring is in the air.

For many, myself included, flowers are indicative of Spring and the warm Summer months to follow.



This is the first rose of the season, it is called Cabana.




These are some pretty flowers I captured on a walk in the hills across the road from my house.


However, for me there is something more that really means Spring is here. When Spring truly makes it's appearance it means that I can hang my laundry to let the sun do what my dryer does in the Winter months.




There is just something so primitive and natural to see the sun and wind dry all that we wear and use on a daily basis. I love the feel and the smell of our clothes, towels, bed linens after they have been whipped around and dried by the elements.



This is by far the biggest indicator to me that Spring has sprung. Can you tell what it is? Not sure? Well here is their sign down below.


My family and I live for these tasty red fruits. They are the best. My oldest is a berry pirate, doesn't matter what kind of berry, but when these are in season we know that school is almost over, the weather is getting warmer, and the best fruits of the year are to follow.



I have a tendency to buy this many strawberries a week. This is a flat of them, there are 12 baskets of sweetness in this flat. I guarantee that with in 2 days these red jewels are gone. My kids, myself included, eat these like candy. They are that good! Imagine, fresh picked from the field, you couldn't get them any fresher.



Well I'm off to enjoy my snack! Have a great day everyone!

I really am sooooooo jealous of you right now.
Strawberries are one of my FRUITY weaknesses.
I buy flats and flats of them to make jams and jellies and I freeze them too for strawberry shortcake.

Those strawberries look amazing! I don't know if it's your camera skills or if the strawberries really are that fantastic, but they look yummy!

And, okay, I just figured out that you and Julia are sister in laws. Um, hello? Why did I not know that?

Those strawberries look awesome. I love buying from the local farmers rather than the supermarket

There is nothing like the sweetness of locally grown strawberries. I can hardly wait for them!

I use the clothesline to dry clothes too but I think I'm the only one who hates the smell.

I love the smell of laundry that was dried by mother nature herself too! There's something fresh about it.

Those strawberries look absolutely yummy. And I suppose you can eat all you want because they're fruit ,therefore they are healthy! They're healthy candy!

It doesn't get any better than that, does it?

thanks for dropping by my blog!
