Weekly Photo Challenge: Between the 2 red and sweet strawberries

 

Yesterday me and my husband went to a very big local farm where you can pick your own fruits and vegetables and then pay as you leave. It is basically a do it yourself Β organic supermarket. πŸ™‚ Since only a specific type of fruits were ready to pick we had the possibility to pick some sweet and red strawberries, raspberries and gooseberries. As I was picking some strawberries I noticed this strawberry growing in the middle of 2 other red and ripened ones. I fell in love with the color contrast, it was like 2 adult strawberries taking care and protecting the new one jealously.

Fresh Strawberries

 

I had an amazing day at the farm, the weather was sunny, you could smell the fresh air and hear no traffic noise just birds singing. It was a nice way of spending Saturday and definitely recharge your batteries.

Carpe Diem!!!
