The Oak St. berry patch...
Several mornings this spring i would wake up and walk outside with the dog to pick a handful of ripe berries... Sitting on the back step tossing strawberry tops into the yard for Icarus to hunt down. Already i find myself missing those cool mornings, more recently replaced with sweltering heat. To be honest I'm pretty thankful for all of these storms we've been having, even the hail was interesting (though we now have perforated sunflowers).
Now, I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but for some reason our three year old ever bearing strawberries are no longer fruiting. Its sort of got me down, but I am still looking forward to the blackberry, raspberry, and June bearing strawberries... We even had a wild blackberry bush find its way to our side yard, and its covered in barely blushing green fruits.
Bare feet, dewy grass, and fresh air are something to be thankful for, for sure. Something that just felt right.
