It's Berry Season

Strawberry season is here...

and it is one of my favorite things about summer

fresh strawberry pie

I have actually made this one
and it is yummy!

there is nothing like picking them off the vine
so fresh and good

ice cream ~ another fav

there is a little 50's style diner here in town
and I always get a milkshake when we go

I think this is my favorite dessert ever
well ~ one of them anyway!

too cute!

daquaries ~ another favorite
I think I have way too many favorites!

dipped in chocolate
I think I will ~ why yes ~ thank you!

funnel cakes ~ yum yum

oh ~ see ~ another favorite here
strawberry rhubarb pie!

with champagne ~ the best!

home made jam is always a treat

strawberry kisses to you!

this is going to be a busy week
we have 3 birthday's to celebrate

my mother-in-laws is today
sis-in-law tomorrow
and my niece Samantha's is Friday

then we have Canada Day
on Thursday

a fun filled week for sure
hope the sun shines upon you today

and get yourself some strawberries!

Lori, what an absolutely DELICIOUS post! Aren't summer strawberries just divine? And so versatile as well! Now I would just love to start my day with those strawberry pancakes and a glass of chilled champagne (with the strawberry too of course) and end it with that scrumptious strawberry cake, YUMMMM! Bumpkin is going to go crazy over those strawberry lips, mark my word!

What a happy week of celebrations you have ahead - I hope you have lots of strawberry-filled days of fun! Enjoy your Sunday sweet friend xox

Dear Lori,
I LOVE summer fruits....all of them but, I think that strawberries are my favourites....or is it raspberries or peaches or cherries ? Oh, I love them all.
With all of those birthday's that you have to celebrate, I think that you might be eating a few of those cakes and strawberry concoctions.
Enjoy all of your celebrations, Lori. XXXX


I sure am glad that I already have two cartons of fresh strawberries in my refrigerator . . . or I would have to get out of my pajamas and head to the store THIS INSTANT.

Beautiful summery post.

Oh, I already have some strawberries I eat each morning on my cereal. But mine come from the store, unfortunately. Love the pics! Especially of the clothespins holding them.

Lori - my name is Carrie and I was just over at Simone's Ironing Basket where I had the opportunity to read your post on Canada.

I just wanted to thank you, so much, for a wonderful representation of the beauty of Canada.

I am Canadian and grew up on the Prairies where the Wild Rose grows freely in the ditches and the crocus is plentiful in our pastures.

I left a lengthy comment over there, but had to come here and thank you personally. I'm following too - because it's always good to connect with people from home. Even if they're on the opposite side of the house (country)!!

xoxo and thank you again!!

Can you send the recipe for the fresh strawberry pie that you made.
That looks like a chunky girl's dream come true!
I love strawberries, and Mississippi is full of them, one thing the oil can't take away, and blueberries, I just froze a bushel over the weekend.
