Pretty Containers

I spent too much time photographing my pot of woodland strawberries. In the front is a large – about the size of the nail of my index finger – strawberry. I love the way the red plays off the cobalt blue pot. When I started, all I wanted to do was eat the strawberry. By the end, I was so into it that I forgot all about it. Amazing accomplishment for me!

Just got back from looking at the pot again and I gave in. I ate six strawberries – but I left the one I was photographing. It felt like almost scratching an itch. When I was eating, the itch was gone, once I stopped – and the biggest one was still there – the itch returned, only more intense. (*see end of post)

One another topic, here is a pretty pot, taken in the Container Garden at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden.

And finally, the most amazing container garden I ever saw was during a tour of the Valentine Garden, designed by Isabelle Greene.

* Addendum: I gave the strawberry to my husband who had a really intense day at work. Not sure he appreciated the sacrifice, but he said the strawberry was good.

  3. It’s tough when the photo bug ruins your appetite 🙂

  4. I’m no longer taking pictures, just eating. They are like tiny candies.
