How about some plump, juicy strawberries for breakfast? I just bought these at the grocery store and am so happy they taste as good as they look. For a few years it seemed like strawberries were going the way of fresh peaches–pretty, but blah-tasting.
I shot these on our deck, and the yellow bokeh was created by the daffodils blooming below. . . .
Sunlight really changes the colors.
Great weekend, everyone. And a big welcome to the new subscribers!
They look tasty. I just planted some strawberry plants this past weekend. Hopefully I will have some like this later this summer.
Oh, good luck with them! Freshly picked are the best.
I have no idea when I last had strawberries that actually tasted like strawberries and not just like flavoured water.
I love the color combination red and green.
Caroline, I actually gave up eating strawberries for quite a while because I got sick of the watery taste. I guess the growers have done something new? Hopefully the good flavor will last.
Oh yummie! I enjoyed a lot of ‘real’ strawberries while in Fort Myers. The bokeh in your shot had me outside checking the flower beds. Even though it’s been a mild winter up here the daffs and tulips have not been fooled. But, hardy as ever, the peonies in the front garden next to the house are just poking up through the ground! WooHoo!
Cool! One of my peonies is starting to come up, but nothing from the other two yet.
I just bought some at the grocery store a couple of days ago and was disappointed :(. There are a lot of strawberry fields where I live, so I think next time I’ll just head to one of their stands.
Sounds like a plan. The grocery stores are kind of hit or miss, unfortunately.
I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award. Link back to my blog for rules at http://shecall.wordpress.com
Thank you so much, but I’ve already gotten it a couple of times. I just don’t have time to participate right now, but really appreciate the gesture.
That is fine. I really don’t know who has received it in the past, but enjoy your blog, so I chose you as one of my 15.
They look delectable. It’s so disappointing when it doesn’t taste as good as it looks. I’m glad this batch did.
I feel the same way about watermelon in the summer.
I’ve had pretty good luck with watermelon if I buy the whole thing, but the precut ones aren’t so great. Trouble is, how do two people eat one huge melon?
