Strawberry Season

We had strawberries in the garden this weekend, in glass dishes with creme fraiche, and on a carrot cake for someone's birthday. Our homegrown strawberries have been nibbled by mice or birds, but there is a little plant of tiny alpine strawberries that is almost ripe and so far untouched by nibblers.

I often include strawberries in my work, painted, stitched or appliqued, and I realised just how many things I have around with strawberries on. A lot. I've always loved them and I doubt I'll ever tire of them (though I must admit that eating-wise I now prefer raspberries!)
