I can see the benefit of buying a house in the spring, but in our experience it's really fun to buy a house in the fall, and see all the surprises spring brings! The first spring surprise was our amazing azalea bushes.
Next I found that what I had thought were weeds growing all through our grass were, in large part, wild strawberries! None of them have ripened yet, but they're getting close. I'm looking forward to trying those, as long as our rabbit friends don't get to them first!
Our most recent surprise were that two big trees in our yard are actually mulberry trees!
They boys and I had so much fun going out and picking the berries and eating them.
Usually we ration berries because we're all berry lovers and berries are so expensive. I love have two full trees of berries that they can eat the berries by the handful. . .
