Strawberries in our backyard!
Well, not exactly our backyard, but in a couple of pots sitting happily in the sun room and protected from the rather strong Wellington winds. I bought the plants last September. Soon enough white flowers bloomed, then the petals dropped and the berries began to form: from the small, dark centres of the flowers into light-green halfway-theres, and finally into bulging reddish goodness! And of course, it reminds me of my hometown of Baguio, famous for strawberries and jams.
Can't wait to have a taste of these!
