Strawberry Fields


Well, my strawberries are really a patch instead of a field.
A small patch.  But they're still blooming!

  1. Blooming is good
    There at your hood
    Even if just a little patch
    Year after year could grow into a big batch

    1. We would say 'blooming well'. Blooming good would be bad grammar.
      haha....one rap on the knuckles for you!

  4. I live near some really big strawberry fields, and every year there are so many strawberries that towards to end of the season the farmer lets everybody take what they want for free! He supplies a big jam making firm. Then after we have what we want he takes the nets off so the birds can finish of the very last ones.

  6. Oh man! You just keep getting better and better with that macro lens. Love it!!! We have a strawberry field down the road from us and have enjoyed fresh berries a couple of times, but I can't wait until the blueberries come in. My neighbor at the lake has planted blueberries on the property line and has invited us to share them. I'm so excited! But if they don't produce, there's always the blueberry farm across the road from us at home. Hope your strawberries do well!!! Tootles!

    I have had that so-tired-I-feel-sick feeling before and it's not nice at all. Hope you get some rest over the long weekend. Take care of yourself.
