The Story of Juneberry Hill

Once there was a farm girl who liked to cook foods she found in the wild

and it led to all kinds of adventures

and wild  mushrooms and  more.

She met a boy who loved to build things; big things like bridges and dams and roads (and little things like baby cradles, too).

They fell in love

 God blessed them with a wonderful family and they followed, too. They are all grown  and off on their own adventures now.

and some…. well….. we laugh about them now.

 

 

SONY DSCHis love of building things and her love of cooking wild things brought them to the beautiful, forested  escarpment of the Red River Valley that they call Juneberry Hill.SONY DSC

Juneberry Hill was home to lots of wild things before the boy and girl found it. Elk use it as a crossing on the way to their wintering area

Juneberries,  grapes, raspberries, chokecherries and lots more grow in the woods.

The hillsides come to life each spring with  wild roses, violets,  and apple blossoms. And it is here where the boy and girl live, still loving to build and cook and serve their savior.
