love thursday 06.04.09 ~ strawberry

(yes, these are in my front yard)

We have only this short life in which to prove our love.

I ate one of these. Not one pictured here, but one from another plant in the yard. (They're everywhere. Remember this and this? In fact, I may have eaten the one from this very blossom.) You'd be surprised at how sweet it was, in spite of the green-ness of it. Getting to them before the slugs and birds requires eating them while still a little bit green.

Just give them a couple more weeks of sun.

Anyone interested in a strawberry daquiri party? Strawberry shortcake? Strawberries and cream...Devonshire?

Mmmmm. That reminds me of the wild strawberries that used to grow in the sand along the Oregon coast. Do they still? Indescribably delicious.
