Discovering Treasures

in our new backyard.

We have found ...


lots & lots of STRAWBERRIES.




I'm dreaming of smoothies & strawberry shortcake. yummy!







Besides two strawberry patches, we also have....
an apple tree...









a cherry tree...










Grapes....








and a pear tree & apricot tree that I haven't taken pictures of yet.



Yes... we have 4 fruit trees, a grapevine, and 2 strawberry patches

in a teeny tiny backyard. *smile*

The move is going well. I have to say that we have spent the last week downsizing!! After living with very minimal material things for 2 years, it was quit the shock to adjust to all our stuff that has been in storage for these past 2 years. And to think I DID downsize when I had packed it all. oh my! I do have to remind myself we had lived in a decent sized home (back in the day)with LOTs of storage space.

This new home is beautiful & spacious too,
just less nooks & crannies to hide things in, thankfully.


Hope to share more soon, but I'm off for now to unpack some more boxes...
