The green hillside hides
Little red berries for me
So bright and fragrant.
Driving in my car I spotted the big white sign declaring strawberries. I had to stop. I have a weakness for strawberries ripened on the vine.
Walking to the stand I noticed the strawberry field in the back.
I bought 2 baskets for $9.
Pricey but I don’t think you will ever get fresher strawberries unless you pick them yourself. They were rosy red and at the peak of their beauty. I could not resist the sweet fruity scent for long. I plopped one in my mouth and juices flew everywhere as I bit down. Flesh was so tender and the flavor was so sweet. These are the best strawberries I’ve ever had. My only conundrum is why I need to drive by Manchester Ave. next weekend…
Call before you plan a trip here as they are not always open.
