Lois Lenski's Strawberry Girl was my favorite when I was a pre-teen. Prairie girl meets garden. Just might be a foreshadowing of my life...plus modernity. The strawberry has always been a favorite. Sweet, bright, sign of early summer. Imagine me with the toy Strawberry Shortcake! Blueberry Muffin was my favorite...she smelled better.
Today's harvest was plentiful.
My ironstone creamer overflowed.
The goose neck are almost out. It has such a great shape.
My daughter loves to cut and clean these for dinner.
Wait till she sees how many she has to cut tonight.
A tiny bit of superfine sugar makes their natural syrup ooze.
For the record, this is my only anchor hocking decal bowl. My mom gifted it to me. She picked it up for a quarter at a local garage sale. I am never that lucky.
I bought my daughter Strawberry Girl. She shows no interest in the book and when the newest reproduction Strawberry Shortcake came out she said she would rather have Pet Shop puppies?
Remember I am not that lucky.
Beautiful homegrown fruit...today I am the strawberry girl!
