We’ve had a gorgeous spring and early summer in McMinnville and at the house. Flowers are blooming in the garden beds, and the clematis in our outdoor breakfast nook just popped into full bloom last week. And we’re thrilled with our newest addition, two blueberry plants in the side yard that Kris planted that are already beginning to burst with fruit. The strawberries from last year are popping out juicy, ripe, red fruits that our guests are welcome to pick, and the blueberries are right behind them. We know from experience that summer may bring too much heat and sun to keep our grass green and our flowers from wilting. But right now the ranch is absolutely gorgeous.
