Signs of Summer!

Hey... Well, the good sign is after a lot of tlc and waiting patiently... 
I picked our first cute batch of raspberries from our little patch!  
Not too shabby for some city slickers! (:

Raspberries...fresh from the patch!

Then, the bad sign is realizing that even though we have a lawn guy and True Green take care of our lawn...  they can not fix dead grass created by a left out slip-n-slide!!!!  (Special thanks to my two darling girls for making that beautiful piece of art in the back yard - I still love u.. MOM!) {Grin!}

Slip-n-slide Happens!
Hope you all are enjoying these gorgeous summer days!  Make some memories and try not to make a dead grass streak on your nicely manicured lawn!!! (:

The raspberries look so yummy ~ can't wait until some are ready around here.
Every time you look at the streak in the yard you can think of the fun they had ~ oh the memories!
Have a great summer!

We have a ton of raspberry bushes now, but the birds eat them before I can get to them. My dog is the one who makes the white spots in the lawn;)

Robin- The berries are so yummy! Can't wait for more!

Jennifer - I bet the blackberries are delish! I hope to make a far of jam this year - just one jar!!!! (:

Debbie - It seems you have to keep a sharp eye on the berries - next thing you know they are ready and I worry the birds might get them... LOL about the dog spots!!! Too funnny!

I think your raspberries look wonderful! I even like the dead grass patch, a sign of a wonderful time had by the girls! I am your newest follower.
I love your blog and can't wait to go through the older posts. Every time I go to a quilt shop I always end up with one of your patterns, never fails.
I met you at quilt expo last year and talked with you for a while and just loved you. I also am pretty much your biggest fan! I'm making something of yours to enter in county fair. I can't wait to see your booth this year, and am looking forward to speaking with you again. Please come visit me at my new blog, Ric Rac and Polka Dots. I'm brand new, but have lots of fun things planned to share with everyone. See you in September!!
