We have been enjoying local strawberries every which way this week.
Crepes with strawberries and whipped cream.
A feast of juicy strawberries over the kitchen sink.
Strawberry shortcake with a group of friends.
Yesterday we had strawberry waffles for lunch at Krause Berry Farms.
We have heard much about this farm in recent years...
but this was our first visit.
It is about a 45 minute drive from our place...
and since we were in the area...
we decided to stop by.
We are glad we did!
there are gardens and a market...
and a bakery...
and a winery.
And u-pick berry fields open to the public.
And all things strawberry at this time of year!
The lunch kit reminded me of one my daughter had some 30 years ago.
The ceiling was lined with pie plates.
Rolling pins hung from the beam.
And one whiff of the fresh-baking-aroma...
was enough to make anyone hungry.
I saw this fresh strawberry pie leaving the store...
in the hands of a young gal who said...
'I love my dad!'
Her dad will be thrilled!
Who knew old church benches would one day provide ringside seating at a strawberry field?
I had to think about these washroom signs for a moment.
Out in the fields...
families were picking strawberries to their hearts delight.
'Tis the local strawberry season.
Don't miss it.
They are the best!
I'll add one more garden photo.
that's where I am today.
In a garden!
I'm enjoying the annual Rotary Garden Tour...
a ticket to view beautiful private gardens in my home town.
It's always a treat!
Have a great weekend!
