I love going to the Farmers' Market. I love purchasing gorgeous flowers and fresh produce from local farmers. I was grown up always eating the freshest and most delicious fruits and veggies. This time of year always makes me crave going back to the market just to browse and take in the sweet smells. There is nothing like the smell of the farmers' market; sweet, earthy and warm all at the same time. To me it's heaven. I'm sure my Grandaddy would say the same.
I could easily cozy up and read a book here for a few hours.
Strawberry pickin'. I love getting my hands in the earth and picking out the sweetest, juciest, sun drenched strawberries. I love picking them right off the plant and popping them in my mouth. Warm, sandy, rich and flavorful. Oh. My. It's perfection. Normally I'll drag John along with me (this really isn't his scene) but he doesn't seem to complain too much once the strawberry pie comes around that evening. So he comes along with me and helps pick them out. I think he enjoys basking in the sun while we pick. He'd never admit it though. :)
The smell of fresh herbs. As the sun comes out and warms up these botanicals you can smell them across the yard, even more when the breeze gets hold of them. I love sitting out on our deck, in the sun smelling the earth. There really is nothing like it.
These are a few of my favorite things about Spring. What about you?
