We have woken in the early morning to views of the fog, then it all disappears to a wonderful bright day like today. It is fascinating to see how it changes our estuary.
I was thinking about the wild strawberries we used to find when we were children. They are so tiny and yet they have such a beautiful flavour like nothing else. The scent lingers on your fingers. I found an old sketch book, the drawings of those tiny wild strawberries dated August 2004. I know they grow in August because it would be in the school holidays when we picked them and ate them each year.
And I found I had drawn a pencil one too, placed in the middle of the page. Just a minute I have some growing in my garden, or is it too early ?
And then I remembered that last year I was drawing a strawberry which was used by Kimberley Bell on Fabric, at "Peony and Sage" website. (Link in my side bar)

It is not a perfect garden, but the birds and the insects and me, all love it.
I am hoping to have lots more days sitting out in the garden eating strawberries and of course some gardening too. Hope you like the page.
Thank you for the lovely comments which I always love reading. Millyx
