bountiful berries

Before I moved to our new house, I never knew wild strawberries grew in the city--I'd never seen them on Capitol Hill before. But my yard has loads of them. Check out the overgrown beds/walkway (that we plan to rip out and beautify very soon) in the backyard that leads to the dog leg area of our house.

Look closely. See those little red dots in the picture? They're miniature strawberries--hundreds of them!

Here's a closer shot.

These little gems actually make me really happy when I find them--they're just so cute and unexpected. Who doesn't love a strawberry, even if it is a weed?
