Summer Pickin's

There is one season I just cannot wait for and that is in late June early July.  Strawberries...They are my absolutely favorite fruit of the season and now that I just opened our last jar of jam I'm really anxious about the season that is not too far off in the distant. 

I'm getting my strawberry palette drooling for those ripe, juicy, sun sweet berries.  I find this is the one fruit that you can do so much with and when you have a chef in the house he can really whip up some simple dishes that are just simply delicious.

I apologize for getting anyone spirits up for spring by looking at this pictures, but I had to look at something that was not white. 



  1. Cheryl, those strawberries look to be sooo delish!! I'm a big fan of eating strawberry shortcake and strawberry jam! I'm another one who can't wait till spring gets here!
    Have a great day!

  2. OMG! Just look at those gorgeous strawberries. It is my favorite fruit. Strawberry shortcake sounds so good now. ;-)

  3. Oh, my goodness, now you've got me craving the strawberry season, which isn't in full gear until May! You are either evil or inspired. ;)

    Seriously, beautiful pics and especially the pear draped in strawberry sauce made me drool. Yum!

  4. Lovely pics of something not white! Hurrah for your spring countdown. Thanks for the message on Blotanical - nice to know you! Kelly

  5. Can I have some please, they look mouth watering.

  6. Well, strawberries are winter pickin' here in Florida! We are just gearing up for strawberry season here, which peaks in February and March. I love this time of year! The restaurants all feature strawberry shortcake, and we have a big strawberry festival over in Plant City.

  7. YUMMM! I Love these pictures. It was just what I needed to see this morning, thank you!
