red and white

It's that time of year again.

Plump. Fresh. Juicy. Red.


The Strawberry Social.

A Canada Day Tradition.

What could be more Red and White than Strawberries and Cream.

Seems my allergy to strawbs is in full force.

Am off to get more yogourt to cool my mouth.


  1. I have been gorging on strawberries for the past couple of weeks....

  2. Wow – I love the new balloons! And I’m so sorry for you and your strawberry allergies. Have you tried organic? Strawberries are absolutely loaded with pesticides and fungicides and other cides because they’re so delicate and grow in such weird conditions. Sometimes what you’re reacting to could be the “cides” and not necessarily the fruit. Just a thought.

  3. Jazz: Red juice dribbling down your chin, no doubt?

    XUP: I've now been reading up on this and apparently "white" strawberries are fine - it is something in the red colour that produces the allergen. Can't think how a white strawb would be appetising looking though. Could be the 'cides, too.


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
