June's Strawberry~Blue Moon!

The full moon in June is called a "Strawberry Moon"!!! And, this June 30th moon is also the second one this month, so it is also a "Blue Moon"!!!

Since I was a little girl, strawberries have been my favorite fruit, ripe and in season, for a treat dipped in dark chocoate, or just hot and juicy from the plant....

So it is no surprise that you will find that I have a collection of strawberries, mostly gifts, I think I have only made two purchases in my life!!! I also have a collection of strawberry Christmas ornaments. My mother has given me one a year for the past twenty-years, so it is quite precious to me!

Here are some of the strawberries that you will find in my kitchen and office...

Enjoy!
