‘Tis the Season

’Tis the season.  Strawberry season. These look good AND taste wonderful. We all know there are berries  that look impressive but disappoint when you bite into them. But not these.

These strawberries captured the taste of summer. Totally!

Unadorned, they were perfection.

(and when I went to look up strawberry I read that “in the botanical world technically they are not considered a true berry” who knew?

“The strawberry is not, from a botanical point of view, a berry. Technically, it is an aggregate accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant’s ovaries but from the receptacle that holds the ovaries.[4] Each apparent “seed” (achene) on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the flower, with a seed inside it.”[4]

  1. Great photo of enticingly delicious strawberries! Are they from your own garden? The store bought ones are mostly tasteless. Thanks for the explanation, Ruth!

  2. Fresh berries (from a garden or local market) are the best! I had some in vanilla yogurt today with some granola – absolutely delicious.

Hope writing a comment today is not a major hassle.....I appreciate hearing from you when you have a minute.
