Simple Pleasures

When I was a young girl, I was allergic to fresh strawberries.
Thank goodness, I outgrew that antagonism.

Jo, those are good looking berries. Are you growing them. I've wanted to try the new little alpine white ones that are supposedly so sweet and flavorful.

That's terrible being allergic to strawberries but how great you outgrew it.

My granddad had an allotment & grew strawberries, they were delicious. Mind you so were the gooseberries, blackberries & I loved his tomatoes were fantastic. My favourites were the little yellow ones he grew especially for me. They were so sweet I used to eat them like sweets, well sweets were rationed at the time just after the war.

I love seeing and smelling strawberries...but I not longer eat them or any berries...because of the tiny seeds...dr. told me no more. So sad for me. But I do enjoy seedless jelly and jams. Bless you Jo. xoxo, Susie
