Strawberry Shortcake

Gardening Phase 3: Pose in the garden in a sweet red outfit and bring joy and cheer to all.

Okay, maybe that's not an official step in the gardening process, but I'm sure you appreciate it. There wasn't enough Nora in yesterday's garden post and I'm here today to kick off your weekend by providing a remedy. This outfit was handcrafted by Nora's Nannie for her latest business venture, Butterfly Stitch. The first time I plopped that hat on her head, I knew sitting near the strawberry patch was in her immediate future. Too bad she'd rather pick grass than smile at the camera. Still, it made for some precious photos:

Although garden-inspired outfits don't necessarily lead to harvest, I can already report success. Nathan and I have been throwing back strawberry snacks for a few weeks, but my mom hit it big a few days ago. She asked if she could have some for a party she's throwing next week, so I handed her a metal bucket and told her to go for it. Being the nice daughter I am, I helped her push the green leaves aside and locate the hidden berries. We ended up filling the bucket and then sampling the top layer. I can't wait to see what she does with them:

TGIF and Happy Weekend, y'all!
