I don't like strawberries...

No, I don't. Call me crazy but I find them too sour,

they're fresh from the field,

warm from the sun,

so sweet and soft the juice runs down your chin.
It's a good place to break the journey from our home to Brisbane,

a nice tradition I share with my daughters,

and a good alternative to junk food to eat on the way.


  1. You must come to Blighty and try warm English Strawberries they are sweet and smell divine. What about Wimbledon for a fortnight in June?

    Lovely pics!

  2. Hello!
    Oh yummy...I could just eat some....but its too wet and cold to look for them today...so I'll enjoy your pictures!

  3. Yum yum yum. I just love the idea of picking your own. They even look better and I bet taste better. Thanks so much for dropping by Beach Vintage.

  4. So it's summer by you now? Good! I can keep the dream alive. It's supposed to snow here this weekend. :-(

  5. There is nothing quite like hand picked strawberries!

  6. I love strawberries! I have to admit though, I've never picked one before. We do have fields around where you can go and pick your own but I'm to lazy. LOL

    Funny you should say you didn't enjoy Scarlett at first because they talked about that in the play. The screenwritter said she was not a likeable person and who would care what happened to her. But the Producer wanted to stay true to the book and kept her the way she was written.

    When you think about it she really was a mean, nasty and spoiled woman!

    I do love Gone With the Wind though. It is long isn't it.



Comments make me happy. Spread the love.

Get to know me

  • I love the smell of cinnamon and vanilla.
  • My favourite flowers are daisies.
  • My favourite trees are pine trees.
  • I always like to have the bickie jar full and a cake on the cake stand. I know...not that healthy, but so good to look at.
  • Autumn is my favourite month, although I do wish we had more of a change of colours up here in Queensland.
  • I love Anne of Green Gables and Laura Ingalls Wilder. They started my love affair with "old-fashioned" stuff.
  • I'm a boots and jeans kind of girl, but also love vintage skirts and dresses.
  • I like sewing and am in love with quilts at the moment.
  • I love reading. (I have a weakness for archeological thrillers and historical romances, but not Mills and Boon-type ones.)
  • I love old houses with character. No new estate houses for me. (Sorry Rosie.)
  • I love vintage/cottage/farmhouse decorating and pretty pinks and blues, with a splash of red for colour.
  • Polka dots can make me sigh with delight.
  • I have 4 chooks. They are MY pets. Another tick on my dream-come-true chart.
  • I don't eat dessert much any more. I'm not dieting, I just don't want it. (Does that mean I'm growing up if I say no to an icecream cone?)
  • I'll still always say yes to chocolate though!
  • I like to sit on the front stairs in the sun, to drink my morning cup of tea, while I contemplate what to do in the garden.
  • I've got the gardening bug again recently. It comes and goes with the weather. I'm envisioning cottage flowers in pink, blue and white to go with my green picket fence.
