Sweet and Wild

Strawberry patch

We have something wonderful in our garden - a patch of wild strawberries close to our garden pond. The patch seems to get a little bigger each year and last year produced a couple of handfuls of sweet, delicious berries.
Today was damp and cold, but in that little spot by the steps where the plants have seeded themselves, there were glistening ruby jewels dancing in the breeze.
And if I'm really lucky, there may soon be enough for a couple of strawberry tartlets.....

Nic, those look really tasty! I love strawberries. When I was a girl we used to pick wild strawberries. They were so tiny but so sweet and tasty. We'd never get much more than a handful or two and my mom would give us each a little bowl and some cream to enjoy them with. I have never had anything quite come up to the taste of them's been a very long time since I have seen wild strawberries. Hope you post your tart recipe when you make it!
