Splendid Strawberries

"You just have to live and life will give you pictures." –Henri Cartier

Strawberries are at their peak at local farms.  Despite the sultry morning, we headed to Braehead Farm to pick berries. We sampled our way through the field, trying each variety – Sweet Ann, Chandler, Sweet Charlie and Benicia.

Fresh berries, warm from the sunshine, juice dripping and running down our arms. 

Beads of sweat curling my hair beneath my straw hat.

Shopping at the Farm Market for just-picked asparagus and rhubarb.

Sweet cream and berries for dessert tonight.

Savoring the pictures life gives me today.
