a peek of red

May 27, 2011

Fresh strawberries from the balcony. Since growing them I never buy strawberries anymore. Not because I have enough homegrown strawberries (I don’t), but because once you’ve tasted what a strawberry should really taste like the storebought stuff loses all appeal.
Same goes for cucumbers and tomatoes btw.

More gorgeous poppies. If only these fields didn’t make me sneeze quite so much.

A little plant at the barn.

I’m off to Italy to photograph a wedding, wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

    I’m back from Italy, but have a lot of catching up to do, so I’ll be back in this space in a couple of days :)

    Just perfect and wonderful. I love red, and your knack for taking such lovely, subdued shots really makes those gorgeous reds pop!

    You are so right. Once you taste homegrown anything – much better than store bought. Pictures are beautiful!

    Thanks KKH and Amber!
    Lynda, I can’t wait for our cucumbers and tomatoes this year. We’re nearing the end of our strawberry harvest and the beans and peas have just started to be ready (yum!), but I know from last year that nothing beats the flavor of a homegrown cucumber and tomato.

    I agree, home grown is overall awesome:) Our chickens ate tomatoes and now we have a small tomato plant in the middle of our lawn. You’ve inspired me to retry growing strawberries, I can’t wait to start again!:)
