Early morning on Memorial Day, Richard and I walked the trails at Panola Mountain State Park. From this wooden deck, you look over the rock outcrop and you can see Stone Mountain in the distance but the camera doesn't always see it.
Very close to Panola Mountain is this strawberry farm where you can pick your own strawberries.You can't tell from this picture that Richard took of me, but I am in my ELEMENT in this strawberry field! I am descended from a long line of farmers and the farmer in me must be enjoying just choosing the ripe strawberries without doing any of the work that has gone into growing them!
It got hot picking those strawberries, so why not go and cool off with my family in my brother's swimming pool? I was able to get this shot of the beach ball in mid-air! Doesn't this look like fun? How nice to lie back in this pool and look up at those puffy white clouds against that blue sky and to see all the beautiful green trees all around the yard! Gorgeous spot on a gorgeous day.
After swimming, those strawberries were waiting that I had just picked that morning! JOY!
