A taste of summer

I know that summer is on the way when the local community farmer's market opens for the season...last Sunday we travelled down to the marina for our first visit of the year...

I really don't have a green thumb...so rather than suffer through the agony of trying to grown my own vegetables,
I support my local farmers...

Fresh strawberries were at the top of the list...the color, aroma and taste of a local berry can not even compare to the ones shipped to the grocery store, long before they are even ripe...






































slicing them up on my morning cereal...or a bowl of vanilla ice cream is divine...






































And I just love those turquoise cardboard containers!

Linking up to Kim Klassen's Friday Finds...to share that one thing that really made your week...
to cherish life's simple pleasures...

  9. Is there a more wholesome combination that strawberries and daisies? If there is, I don't know what it is. Beautiful. And perfect for Friday Finds.

  11. there's nothing like fresh strawberries - except mayb fresh raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries :)
    we have a wealth up here in the PNW!

    I love slicing them on my p-nut butter sandwiches - just like jam :)

    1. Beverly - love that old pitcher too - let you in on a little secret - the pitcher is so worn and rusty that it has no bottom! but a spare glass jar inside holds all the flowers just fine...
