Sunshine and Strawberries!

Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,

I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.

If you don't recognize that, it's the chorus from the song of the same title from the musical "Oklahoma".

'Tis the season for strawberries in Essex County and they are divine! Smaller than last year but more intense in flavour and sweetness.

Enjoy the fruits of the season and I hope that everything is going "your way" wherever you are and whatever you're doing :)

I saw Oklahoma in Stratford. Loved it.
MMMMMMMMM fresh and warm with the sun strawberries.
Will some those become jam? Or are they already et up?

My grandmother had a music box that played this song. Your post just brought back a sweet memory.

The strawberries look delicious! Enjoy!

Oklahoma is one of my favorite musicals! I've seen the movie a few times and a performance right here in Cape Town.

Hope you are going to make some smoothies with that!

I'm sure you'll post so I'll hold off on the kudos for now, k? :)
