friday, found me saying... "okay, sure... i'll come over and pick wild grapes to make jelly," to my friend, melanie.

first of all and most importantly... welch's jelly has nothing on us, self-sustaining chicks!

even if it was the hottest day of the year... we trudged  down the dirt road  (me in my wellington's... because i'm afraid of snakes and in my mind, i think wellie's protect me better!!), dove in the thick bramble and picked.

i of course, wasn't as brave and adventurous as melanie... i sort of kind of stayed on the dirt road and she would toss the wild vines to me... and i gingerly plucked them.

it was a beautiful way to spend a friday.
thanks be to god, for good friends and natural resources~

smile, wink, nod.

p.s.  no pictures of the jelly... it was still being processed, when i left.

That's awesome! Nothing quite like real grape jelly. And I am glad for you that you didn't come across any snakes! Always a good thing. :-)

wild picked anything is such a delight. You looked so cute in your skirt and boots. How fun!!
