Despite all the outside work to be done ~ planting, mowing, and seemingly endless weeding......I don't think it gets much better than this ~ like fresh strawberries from our patch. Both the raised bed and the landscaping fabric & straw have worked so well, I have had to do virtually no weeding of this part of the garden. Our flowering bushes have never had so many blooms... ...lots of perennials are in bloom,
...the roses smell great,
...and there's even been a little time squeezed in to relax by the pool.
I could stay 'here' in the middle of June for a long time!
I think I'll go make some shortcake and dig out my favorite strawberry pie recipe.
