Summer Afternoons Call out BLACKBERRY PIES!

We live here in Oregon for Summer Afternoons.  (Yes, with caps!

The blue skis, the warmer weather, 
   the taste of blackberry pies, 
         the time sitting in metal chairs visiting,
                    swinging lazily in the hammock, deck swing and wood swing, 
        watching the birds over the fields and hearing the WIND BLOW!  

There's the daily cutting of the hydrangeas,  
           visiting coastal beauties, such as lighthouses, 
           the fun slip-n-slides.

 Making of snacks such as caramel corn, and blackberry smoothies...and blackberries pies....over and over!

What do you spend your summer afternoons doing?

Hi Heidi ~ Will gladly swap you a piece of fresh peach pie for a slice of blackberry pie! And maybe trade a giant sunflower for one of your pretty blue hydrangeas. It looks like we'll have a good number of pie pumpkins, and Gary pulled up the last of our great potatoes today! As always, the weeds are free. U-pick!
