Despite the fact that Spring is no where in sight - we have snow on the ground and more coming, I went on a strawberry hunt yesterday. I was told that wild wood strawberries grow in abundance in the courtyard of the insane asylum. Even though the place totally creeps me out, I put on my snow boot, whistled for my faithful & fearless doggies and set off. Yes indeedo, under a blanket of snow there be tiny little strawberry plants.
Believe you me, when summer rolls around, I will be up there crawling around up there in search of these tiny delicacies.
Speaking of delicious, here is what I got from my secret stitcher.
The colors are a bit washed out on the photo, but I love my Blackbird Design Strawberry. This will tide me over until I can get the real thing.
