Stop for a moment...
The last strawberry by Helen in Wales
The last strawberry, a photo by Helen in Wales on Flickr.

...to contemplate the last of the wild strawberries.

These little wild strawberry plants grow happily in the most unlikely places around the garden. These squeeze themselves into the crack between the concrete path and the brick wall of the conservatory. But now it definitely feels like autumn, I've been turning the heating on for a while each morning and the strawberry leaves are fading.

How lovely and a bit...wistful, maybe?

The days are feeling rather grey and a little melancholy now, though we're still not quite into full autumn yet.

wild strawberries all through the summer--you live in a blessed place :-)

I haven't been eating them for a while. They get a bit squishy and tasteless once the hot weather is over. But they are determined little plants.

We've been done with strawberries - even the wild ones - for 6 weeks now.

I haven't been eating them for a while. They get a bit squishy and tasteless once the hot weather is over. But they are determined little plants and our climate is quite mild, being only a few miles from the sea.
