Strawberries!

Photo Challenge Day 7: Drink

(This is obviously not a drink.  I have previously posted my favorite drink, in the very first post of this challenge.  See it here, so I took the liberty of showing you a bit more of my patio in a close-up.)


Well, my strawberry pot is well on it's way to producing!  I have 12 Junebearing plants in the pot on my patio.  Six of them are Rainer and the other six are Hood (Fragaria x ananassa) strawberries.  If you are not familiar with these names or varieties, these are names of Northwest mountains.  Mt Rainer is in Washington State and Mt Hood is in northern Oregon.  Both are sleeping volcanoes with beautiful snow covered peaks.  I see Mt. Hood daily from the streets of my town. Maybe I will show that in a few days.


Participating in a June photo challenge hosted by Chantelle of FatMumSlim. Prompts are given for each day and participants do a photograph to post to any of  several possible places.  I have chosen to post to this blog.  You can check out other participant's photos either on her blog or on twitter at #photoadayjune on Twitter.
