|aren't they beautiful?!|
However, I missed my apple tree and blueberry bushes. The excitement of watching the blossoms turn to fruit entranced me every year. The hope that one day I would actually get to harvest some of it Before the deer ate it made for fun pursuit. (never happened by the way!)
When we planted our small flower bed garden for Valentine's Day, I smiled as the kiddos selected fruit trees and blueberry bushes. And, this week, I triumphantly harvested ripe blueberries!
Five. No, I did not take a photo of only the best. That is all. Five. But they are big and juicy and, from watching Shell's face as she ate them...very Sour! :)
So, we traded 5 acres for 5 blueberries. huh.
Here's TGIF: simplicity. May you be blessed by the little things. And may they be your joy as you remain steadfast in the big things.
