Yum yum yum …… We went strawberry picking today. DH & I and ds, ddil and dgs.  One for the bucket, one for us, one for the bucket, one for us.  Well not quite that many for us but definitely a few.  Dear little gs was very good and loved picking them and only ate 3 or 4 or 5 🙂

We were all happy, the sun was shinning but the temperature had dropped to about 28°C from a sweltering 40ºC yesterday.

DGS was a great help.  I would snap the stems and he picked them and popped them into the bucket or his mouth.

The strawberries are delicious but this little puppy was pretty cute too.

The property is at Wallington, just near Ocean Grove, Victoria.  In March the local school holds a highly popular Strawberry Festival.  Well worth a visit as long as you don’t mind the crowds.  I think today was a much better option – no crowds and lots of lovely berries.
