Strawberries: A last hurrah

Strawberry season is just about over here in the Bogs. It was unusually long this year. I think that’s due to the cooler weather, and the fact that it was a later season than years past. The strawberries were, in my opinion, better tasting than usual. Locally grown, freshly picked strawberries are always yummy, but this year they outdid themselves in terms of good strawberry flavor.

I’ve noticed a red trend here since I started food blogging with NaBloPoMo. It’ll be interesting to watch the summer colors as I continue through the month.

In terms of flowers, this is our orange month. The daylilies are blooming and most of the roadside daylilies in this area are orange. I love riding along the back country roads lined with daylilies.

I’ll do my Move 2008 update tomorrow since Sunday is my last day of the exercise week (mine runs from Monday through Sunday). I might get some more walking in today (I did 4 miles this morning). I had an excellent week. My best this year, I think.

  1. We’ve had some excellent local strawberries here too. The ones in the chop salad last night were stunning.

    You have color themed seasons too? Obviously you were out here during our yellow season 🙂 But after that initial spring blast of yellow, the blooms balance out pretty much here. I’d love to see some photos of your orange.

    I went out today, just for you, and took some photos of the daylilies and another orange flower. Not all of the orange stuff is in full bloom yet, but should be within the next few weeks.

    I’ll post ’em tomorrow.
