Blog has moved

Hi everyone,

All of the posts of this blog have been moved to the main blog page now under the Piktures label. I'll be hiding this page eventually. New reviews will be posted on the main blog only.

Thank you,

Strawberries in the backyard

Since Urv mentioned that he loves strawberries too along with cherries, I thought I'd share some of my latest photos. These are the ones growing in the backyard on two little plants (or are they called shrubs? I dunno), which are less than six inches tall because the leaves are heavier than the stems and they are growing sideways more than vertical. The whole plant actually fits within one square foot.

I will take photos of the plant and share as well. Until then here are some shots of the tiny fruits. :)

The fruit is born from tiny white flowers.

Which eventually grows into tiny yellowish green fruit like this.

That grows into bigger fruit turning a shade of light pink when fully grown.

And before you know it, the pink turns into bright red! (Btw, those tiny blank ants love to eat the leaves of strawberry plants)

This is what it'd look like when you've just picked it off the plant. :D

Here's what the plant looks like (top view).

A typical strawberry farm looks like this. This one is located in Brentwood, CA.

More strawberry photos taken by me.

My favorite photos - Bing Cherries

Finally got a chance to visit the cherry farms this year during the season in May.

These are some of my favorite photos. :)

Five cherries in a row.

Still together, even on ground - these cherries. :)

A bucket full of cherries.

It's things like these that make me go "WOW..." @ Mother Nature!
