Lovely Lakeville Lake
Sweet, juicy, and loaded with nutrients, strawberries are one of nature's tastiest and healthiest foods. They are also now ripe in this area and ready for picking! Driving through Litchfield County, CT as well Dutchess County and Columbia County, NY the signs are up at the farms with both "u-pick" and "pre-picked". Ellsworth Farm in Sharon, CT, about 10 minutes from the Interlaken, is one of those places offering both. Have you picked lately? If you have the time (like I did on Sunday afternoon) I would certainly recommend it. It has been a long time since I had done that, and it was the first time for my young daughter. We got our empty box and headed out! Rows and rows of strawberry plants in the fields, so fragrant from the hot afternoon sun. There were so many berries on each plant and in a very small section my daughter and I made out like bandits! It was great bonding time (we listed all of the meals we'd be having with strawberries over the next week) and it was wonderful to be out in the fresh country air. Be sure to make time to "smell the strawberries" this season! Ellsworth makes it easy by offering picking 7 days per week.
P.S. We decided the best way to eat strawberries is just like this!
Eat, Drink and Be Merry!
Although Eric Limon did not take these photos (see previous blog for amazing wedding photos), they still show you how Joann at Country Gardener’s decorated the wedding space for the bride and groom today!
Wedding Photo Book
I have to start by saying a big thank you to Eric Limon, a highly talented photographer chosen by many couples who have decided to get married at Interlaken. He has shot so many amazing photos over the years, and just recently compiled an entire book of his favorite shots that showcase both the couple, their special moments and the beauty of the Interlaken property as a wedding destination. As Brandon handed me the beautifully bound leather book, I just knew whatever was inside was incredible. In addition to the actual leather book that lives in the Interlaken lobby waiting for prospective couples to admire it, you can view the entire book on our Facebook page:
I realize not everyone has access to Facebook, so here are a few photos taken by Mr. Limon. After seeing these photos you may wish to contact Eric - click here to visit his website for more information. You also may wish to get married at Interlaken! We host any size event, any season of the year. Click here to visit our weddings page!
