    Gorgeous photos. But looking at pictures like that makes me feel like people in the northern parts of this country have a really low quality of life for much of the year! πŸ™ Everything’s dead, brown, grey, and snow-covered here. I want to move to CA!

    Jenna, those pictures are equal parts delight and torture.
    Delight because I’m a girl who plays in the dirt and grows lotsa veggies…and torture because I happen to live in Northern Wisconsin…which means I just walked through 3 foot of snow to get to my mailbox. Yeah. Really.

      Cathy summed up my feelings perfectly, I experienced delight and torture while scrolling through your gorgeous photos! As I look out the window and see a couple feet of snow (a little less here in Southern Wisconsin), it seems like our farmers’ market is a long way off πŸ™
