Where The Orange Blossoms Grow....

Hello! Welcome to the Stricklen's blog. We hope to keep our family and friends up to date with what is going on with our family. You will find a variety of experiences posted here -- you may find pictures of the never ending project of building our house, Callie helping William with his first steps, Mary studying a rare insect species, or perhaps you may be terribly bored with Molly's numerous fruit trees, berries, vegetables and rare plant pictures! Who knows what we may find Chris and CJ doing -- probably something having to do with a tractor or machine of sorts. Abby and Margaret will keep us entertained with costumes from other lands or a fairy story. Whatever we post, we trust it will lift your spirits and bring honor and glory to our Lord!

Fruit and Berry Harvest!!!!! :D

Hi! We have been enjoying our fuits and berries these past few weeks. Here are a few pictures, and maybe the next time you're at our house you can enjoy them too!!
"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. " Gal. 6:9 KJV

Sweet Southern Peaches!

Mary and Willie with his peach(He looks more interested in his peach than the camera!)

More Peaches!

Wonderful fruits of your labors, Stricklens! I can hardly wait to sneak over and get a peach or two myself! And of course the pictures of Wills and his adoring minions are cute as pie! He is one cute little brother!

Oh! Your fruits are so beautiful!!! It is always very pleasant to come to the Stricklen house and just stroll around...so many interesting trees and plants to look at. I feel like I am at an old Florida home.

We love you!

Hello Stricklen Family,
Just wanted to let you know that we are still enjoying your family's harvest since you were all so kind to allow us to bring home so many grove goodies. We made full use of the grapefruits including the rinds! We posted the recipe for a great jam-like dessert. If you'd like to check it out visit Samantha's blog at http://web.mac.com/handmaidens/Handmaidens_of_the_Shepherd/Blog/Blog.html
Love keeping in touch with you all through your site. Have a blessed week!
The Little family
