{The Flavors of Summer}
Ahhh the taste of summer ... :)
My kids and I just walked in from picking cherries at a friend's house. Don't you just love the flavors of summertime? A few of my favorites are -
Cherries, pink lemonade, vanilla bean ice cream, pasta salad, fresh veggie stir fry, strawberries, peaches, tomatoes from the garden, avocados, and watermelon ...
Special thanks to Carl & Diane Volmer for sharing their cherry tree with us
(Picking cherries at their home has become a beginning of summer family tradition!!)
Happy Summer!!

Sounds lovely! And what a great new summertime, family tradition. One that we do since moving to CT, is to pick blueberries. I never really liked them before, but they are so good out here.

You can't forget fresh summer corn...wow, we had the best corn on Monday night, you should have seen us eating it--we were in pure heaven. Yum, I love the tastes of summer!
