Strawberry Sunday

reading time: ca. 1 min



I'm proud to announce that I came to accomplish one of my tasks from Day Zero Project yesterday: 
strawberry picking

 
Sweet, right? (seewhatididthere) Yeah. Guess what I ate for breakfast today. And for lunch. Aand... no, I'm only joking. or am I? 

Anyways, this weekend I went to visit my little brother (he's way bigger than me, who am I kidding, but still he's my little brother) and we decided to go strawberry picking since he happens to live in a village near a big strawberry field. 

As you can see below, this year's summer decided to behave like April: rain-swept, foggy and cold. Not exactly the perfect strawberry-picking-weather, but that didn't really bother us. We wanted to go strawberry picking, so we did. Wearing rubber boots. Yep, that's how we roll. 


 
Gotcha! Ooh yeah, the very first strawberry I picked : )

After almost an hour of crouching between greens and thistles, searching for berries with one hand while holding my camera with the other and being watered by rain, the sun finally decided to come out and join us for a bit. See, how it dipped the fields in this soft hazy light?

1) pale baby berry.
2) lush and full of life adult.
3) strawberry corpse.


Success! Hardboiled hunters bringing home their prey ; ) All in all we got 5 kg ( = 11 lbs) of handpicked strawberries! And probably ate at least another kilo while picking, haha. I was completely soaked and chilled to the bones afterwards, but happy as a bunny. It was totally worth it.
I mean, just look at that ruby red treasure. Yum yum yum! ♡



Sweet smell of summer.

Me and my share of strawberries. Ahh, these gorgeous babies - drool - 

I ate them all. That's right.

The reason why 'summer' starts with an S: Strawberries.

Happy Sunday, summer-lovers ~
