Berry heap - SOLD

Seriously, they're luscious! We live in a fruit belt but it will be a few months till the strawberries are ready. Right now we're still in the snowy/rainy blustery weather of March.  Last night I was telling my kids how when I was a kid, strawberries were precious because we only got them seasonally. The stores at that time did not import them as they did bananas and oranges. We've been enjoying them sliced up with sugar and cream for dessert. 
6" x 6" / oil on panel / $75

Tout à fait vrai pour moi aussi. Je n'étais pas habituée à avoir des fruits hors la saison... Aujourd'hui j'ai acheté les premières fraises via Espagne!!! Ce n'est pas bien, n'est-ce pas?!
Les vôtres me donnent l'eau à la bouche.
