Wonderfully Preoccupied!

Over the last three days, flowers have bloomed all over our yard! We have songbirds. We have a mythically large lemon tree. We even have poisonous blooms, which Wikipedia tells us are used for murder, seduction, and robbery! It is an absolute fairy tale.

I've also been busy perfecting my strawberry lemonade recipe!

Strawberry Lemonade
1 cup  fresh strawberry juice (about a small carton of berries' worth)
2 cups fresh lemon juice
1.5 cups sugar dissolved in 1.5 cups cold water (on stove)
4 cups cold water (or 5 if you like it a little less punch-y)

1.) Make simple syrup. Combine water and sugar in pan and heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.
2.) Mix it all together in a pitcher. Refrigerate or serve over ice. YAY!
