Ode to a Strawberry 

By Beth Sycamore

Plump Strawberries.

Ripe Strawberries.

Bright red heart-shaped Strawberries.

Hiding under leafy greens.

Pluck the berry.

In the summer sun.

Pinch the stem.

Have some fun.

Twist the stem.

Almost done.

Put the berry in a cup.

Better yet, just eat it up!

(Or  even better…make ice cream!)

  1. The Strawberry Princess rules the berry patch!! She is every bit as sweet as the berries she is picking. Thank-you for this delightful post and the beautiful photos of the ever adorable Princess. P.S. The ice cream is very inviting too!

    1. She was quite excited about the strawberries this year but managed to eat her weight in strawberries at the farm. I think we have a tradition in the making!


    1. The store berries may be big and bright red but the flavor of just picked berries can’t be beat. Picking strawberries is a highlight of our spring. I freeze bags to enjoy all winter.


    1. Strawberry season is just ending in Maryland. When I lived in Pennsylvania growing up I remember picking them in June and July. Those berries were wonderful. The store bought ones may be big and red but they just don’t have the same flavor.
