berries and flowers

Ah, berry season is here! We picked the last of the strawberries last night (boy were they hard to find!), then moved to the raspberries---and all the ripe ones had been picked that day! Kinda a bust picking-wise, but we have a few, and we'll go again to get more raspberries earlier in the day when they're not all picked out... Kinda sad we missed the strawberries---might order a flat pre-picked from a place that still advertises they have some---then we can put up some freezer jam. I'm wanting a year of strawberries where each one is an exclaimable treat ("Wow, look at this one!!") like I remember once or twice in years past... maybe next year!

On the walk home from the farmer's market today I discovered this crazy flower in a neighbors yard---he said it was some kind of lily (looks like a mutant Calla lily to me!)---luckily my sweetie was packing his camera so we captured these shots---pretty wild! If you check out the little California poppy in the first photo you can see the size of that lily---much larger than a calla! Happy Saturday!
