April 25, 2012 -- Alpine strawberries

This was sitting in my friend Rosanne Shalf's windowsill yesterday, and I loved it so much, I asked if I could take it home and photograph it in my windowsill (because I didn't have my camera). So here it is, in my windowsill where it looks almost as pretty as it did in Rosanne's.
Rosanne grows these lucious little strawberries and has given mw plants over the years, but they never seem to succeed for me. This isn't the wild Virginia strawberry (which isn't even edible). This is the true Alpine strawberry (frais d'bois), which is a delicacy to eat and a feast for the eyes, too! Rosanne often uses them do decorate desserts, and they also obviously hold up well when cut and put in a vase.
