Strawberries

October 26, 2010



Such a beautiful Labour weekend was a lovely time to be in the garden.

I decided to pot up my 14 strawberry runners which sprouted from our three plants last year. It will be some time before the fruit will be ready but it surely was a promise that summer is on it's way!

On the Sunday we took a wee trip to Ohope and on the way back as fate would have it, we passed some strawberry fields! I couldn't resist stopping for a bit of "Pick Your Own" of some of the beautiful red ripe fruit.

It was an hour of pure bliss - out in the sunshine with my honey, picking gorgeous strawberries warm from the sun and eating a few along the way with no rush to be anywhere in particular. Heaven.



Although I had devoured a considerable amount of strawberries, there was still enough left to have with meringues and cream with my Mum and Dad later in the afternoon!
