First Strawberries.

For those of you who followed my lead and grew some indoor strawberry plants you will no doubt be looking to harvest your first berries this weekend or very soon after, maybe you already did.
For those who didn't grow any indoor plants you will have to make do with the flowers for a little while longer which I think are just as pretty as the berries are tasty.

Vicki went for an interview for a job today and everything seems positive so we are hopeful that if she gets it things will turn out better than the last one did.

I will leave you with a couple more pictures from my walk last weekend, these are taken whlst walking through the Bluebell woods on the way to Hassop village.

Gorgeous Bluebells! Such lovely paths to walk on! And to have your own strawberries to eat...delicious!

Those bluebells are amazing!

I bet your strawberries are delicious. I've never had much luck growing them, but luckily the local farmers do it well.

I read a blog post by someone who stopped by Westminster Abbey after the Royal wedding, she said the trees inside were underplanted with lily of the valley and strawberries!

Beautiful pictures. We have our first berry but the rain has been so heavy, it had a bad spot.

what a delight that you are able to walk to the village on such a wonderful path.

There is nothing quite like your first strawberry of the season. Definitely worth bringing a couple of plants inside a greenhouse to bring on early. Mine are all outside but starting to swell. Looks like it is going to be a bumper year for them!
