What says love more than a bouquet of beautiful flowers?
How about a bunch of asparagus?
Tall Guy and I took a few hours yesterday afternoon to get away from the farm for a romantic walk......
.......along a ditch bank.
I call it "Bottoms Up" time! If you drive along our stretch of US 41 in the next few weeks, you will see several cars parked along the side of the highway, and you might think someone with a crazy sense of humor has put a bunch of those "Bottoms Up" signs along the road.
You might think everyone is picking morels! I WISH! But it's something just as yummy. I can't actually believe I just typed that because I used to turn my nose up to this veggie as a kid, but now I LOVE it, side effects and all!
So off we, my Tall Guy and I, moseyed to our secret place to see what we could find! We were not disappointed! Well I have to qualify that statement because I found this big guy right off the bat and just knew I would find more, but I didn't :-(
It was fun, and I had a nice view.
Once we had walked one side of the ditch, the logical thing to do was cross it and pick the other side. Easy Peasy right? HA! Remember we have had a bit of rain in these parts, so trying to cross wasn't the simplest thing to do.
First we had to pick our spot. Then Tall Guy graciously said he would hold my bag and camera while I crossed first. Didn't realize he was trying to set me up AND document the whole event!
WaHOO! Made it with only wet shoes! He did too, but with those DANGED long legs, how could he not!
Meanwhile.....I have some asparagus to get ready for the freezer!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO EVERYONE ! Whether you are a real mom or "second" mom, remember that there are little eyes looking up to you every day! Be proud and walk tall!
