The Emotions of Strawberry Picking

Yesterday, we decided to join our friends on their yearly visit to the local farm for u-pick strawberries.  I think I can safely declare that it is indeed Spring, even if the calendar says otherwise. It was a glorious day with temperatures is the mid 70’s!  (Northern friends, you won’t be hating me so much […]

The Winter Nature Table

Here’s our winter nature table once again.  Even though some days it doesn’t feel like winter, it at least looks like winter on our nature table.  I got the idea for the tree from Made by Joel.  I really miss naked trees down here in Florida.
