Bite Me..


Look what I found in my garden today.  No one knew.  No one saw it.  I was alone.
If someone had come along, I`d have declared `look, a strawberry, the first of the season!`
I would have offered to share. 
So, I sat there a while.  Maybe three minutes.  Felt like forever.
But no one came.

I picked it.  I put it down.  I looked over at Lily playing with her cousin. 
She loves strawberries.  But she would eat it all.
She can be so greedy. 
She`d never know. 

 

I took a bite.  A more perfectly delicious berry, there could not be. 


I can be so greedy too.

Just discovered your blog and read a sampling of your former posts...I am hooked...and now officially following.
I live in BC as well...and now I want to eat a strawberry but instead will be harvesting some rhubarb from my garden to make a crisp.

Aaahh the greed of berry greed. I know it well.
Berry greed is good greed...perhaps Im the Gordon Gekko of the patch but when one tends the garden one reserves the right to first dibs. Philosophy never mentions berry greed but I'm certain Plato agreed.

Don't tell Dusty, but I did the same thing. We have wild strawberries growing in the front of the house. They are so tiny. I knew he'd want it, but I just couldn't help myself. I think it makes us happier which in turn makes us better mothers. Right?

DesignTies said...

Mmmmmm!!! Fresh-picked strawberries are the best!!! It's still about a month till strawberry season starts here -- can't wait!! :-)

BTW, I would have been greedy too :-)

Hello there! I come by way of Rosie and have seen your name around the comment page...what a gorgeous blog you have! Anita

Tee hee! Yummy!

Grace said...

You did the right and honourable thing - one strawberry doesn't divide three (or even two ways) very well so it is better just to eat it in secret and keep it your guilty little pleasure. Well done.

Vintage Simple said...

Ha. What a perfectly-written (and photographed) post, Heather. I loved it.

(For the record, I would have done the same thing. In fact, I almost feel like it was me who had that first strawberry.)

xoxoxo,
