    some of my favorite things! i love rhubarb and strawberries in a pie, i will have to keep an eye out for them in the stores. the second photo is really textural and interesting to see all the shades of redbrown; don’t you find fern fronds stunning? whippletree junction looks like a really creative and fantastical place to visit!

      Velma – the gardens this year are lush and overgrown from the rain and then a day of warm sun
      Anastasia – the ferns are overgrown and unfurling in amazing corkscrew patterns
