An unusual POV: Strawberries in Voru, Estonia

Strawberries, by Penne Cole

On a visit to my college room mate’s home town in Voru, Estonia, I am fascinated by the enormous kitchen garden in front of her grandaunt’s house. There are neat rows of berry bushes, but it is too soon to tell what sort of berries they are, and Liisa has forgotten. There are two enormous greenhouses filled with tomatoes and more dill than a whole family could possibly eat. There are rows and rows of spinach and potatoes and all sorts of herbs. But I am most fascinated by the strawberries.

The strawberries are large, but still green, although flecks of red are starting to show through. Liisa tells me that these are probably only a week away from being ripe. I hunker down on the ground to take some pictures – if I can’t taste them, at least I can take away some memories.

This post was inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: An unusual POV.
