    While I was at my daughters in Va. Beach this weekend, we went to the Strawberry Festival. Man, I love those things! My wife, her daughter, and Grand Daughters Stephanie & Ashley went berry picking. We wound up with about 15 gallons of berries almost as big as Plums. Now the fun starts; Berries on Ice Cream, Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberry Longcake (pound cake), Strawberry Pie, Strawberries and cereal, Strawberries & Cream, Strawberries dipped in Chocolate, Strawberry Sandwiches, Strawberries on Strawberries with Strawberries.

    Billie,
    Have they had the one in Roanoke yet? I think it was the first of May when I was there a few years back. I really enjoyed that one and purchased some beautiful irises from a lady, while there.

    Take care and hope to see y'all soon,
    Cheryl
