Thank you so much for all your pins today!! Tonight and Thursday, let's do a STRAWBERRY COUNTRY COTTAGE in RED. Let's try and get a country feel to the board and not just a red & white cottage. Thank you!!
I grew up near Plant City, Florida, the strawberry capital of the world. My Grandmother, Mother and I planned a day trip to pick fresh strawberries from the fields of Plant City. I immediately recognized the Beatles inspiration for their song...Strawberry Fields Forever. I will never forget being in the fields of wonderful fragrance that day with two of my most favorite ladies in the world and the intoxicating strawberry fragrance that filled my senses. bp
