(Heaps of) Strawberry flowers in my garden….

June 3, 2010

…. soon heaps of lovely strawberries….

– but now is the time to  enjoy their pretty flowers:

This post is dedicated to thedailyclick and the post Raspberries (1), where I learned, that Jordbær in Danish is Strawberry in English, and Hindbær in Danish is Raspberry in English.

But one thing is sure: Both of them tastes just marvellous 🙂

    The reflected light on the flowers in the first shot is really nice!

    I’ve tried growing strawberries…never got to harvest the fruit as the critters would always get to them before us!

    I’ve never seen their flowers but have eaten the spoils of their work many, many times. In fact, I passed by a farmer’s market yesterday who had strawberries. Can short cake be far behind?

      When I was younger we could buy – and pick – strawberries only in summer, now imported berries from mainly Spain are sold all the year…. And Scott, I have some difficult in translating /understanding this: “Can short cake be far behind?” (my English is mainly selftaught, you know 😉 )

    I haven’t seen strawberry *flowers* before – they’re quite beautiful!

    We have a couple of places in South Africa, where you can even pick your own strawberries (and other berries) when they come in season – see here.

    We’ve been to the Mooiberge farm stall a few times to pick strawberries. It’s such fun!

    We have many “pick your own” places here, too ( f.ex. ) , but we don’t – we have enough in our garden 😉
