It is Monday!!!

The amaryllis are in full bloom!!!! In Florida they are planted in the ground and come up every year all on their own!!!  They are a very good buy!!!  Ours are 20 years old!!
 We bought one strawberry plant 3 years ago and have had a lot of strawberries every since.  We now have 220 plants that all came from that one berry.  200 of our berries are now planted in the ground.  Tom planted them last year.  We were afraid that the critters would eat them all like they eat our pecans.  But people we have more berries then they can eat!!!  I am bringing in 20 to 30 berries everyday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Oh I see a lot that have been eaten by our critters but we still have plenty for ourselves!!  YA YA YA!!!
They are sooo good soo good!!!!!

Love coming your way,  Zoie & Fern


  1. That is so neat that you have garden things and flowers already.... That's okay about the 50 - 500 -- I do that too.... BTW -- congrats on 500!

  2. Yum! I love strawberries and it sounds like you have enough to share with all the critters too!

  3. I am the critter around here who eats MOM's strawberries. Well me and the raccoon and skunks, oh and the deer. But MOM still gets a few. hehhehehe. The flowers are beautiful.

  4. I love Amarylis and you are so lucky to have them growing in the garden. More strawberries than you can eat too. Thats fabulous... Enjoy... Hugs GJ xx

  7. Hi Fern, local strawberries are still at least 2 months away up here. We're still eating the tasteless stuff from California. They smell okay but they're all white inside the berry. Anyways it's cool but sunny up here. Around 45 degrees but it'll cloud over later today and then it'll rain :(

  8. Your amaryllis is just beautiful, Fern! We can't leave our bulbs in the ground or they'd never bloom again.
    Your strawberries look so yummy!

    Love ya lots,

  9. Beautiful flowers and berries! I keep saying I want some patio strawberries... Maybe I'll work on that this weekend.

  10. Your flowers are so pretty and strawberries sound yummy!!


  11. We can't grow strawberries here (it's too hot and humid) so we have to buy ours that are imported from Korea. I love strawberries.

  12. Beautiful pictures, especially the amaryllis! xox

  13. Oh my, home grown strawberries!!! Our weather is too hot for growing strawberry here.

    You have a lovely garden!

  14. Beautiful flowers! How wonderful to have a garden to eat from.

  15. Your flowers are B-UTE-Iful!! It's amazing that you have so many strawberry plants. We would like to eat some of them fer sure!!
