Strawberry Picking!

It is difficult to get my mother to smile naturally....she is a photographer's challenge. Above is a natural smile for her. Move the berry down a little? yeah....but for my photo frame it doesn't much matter! I like the mountains in the background as well. The Schoharie Valley is beautiful this time of year.

We only moved about three yards and we picked 9 quarts of strawberries!

I know this isn't the most flattering photo; however, this nice lady, who spoke with my mother, was a character and this is her in her glory! Picking strawberries an living in the Schoharie, NY area seemed to please her very much!
