Tonight was the night of the Full Strawberry Moon! And here are my pictures of it. It was given this name because June is the relatively short period that strawberries grow. Here you see a few of the tiny wild strawberries that grow in our yard. Someone told us that this kind is poisonous, do you think so? And here is our Granddaughter Anne Marie and her friend at the local strawberry field. She goes there every year to pick them, then her mom makes lots of yummy goodies from them. Strawberries are the only fruit with the seeds on the outside, and each berry has about 200 seeds! In parts of Bavaria, country folk tie baskets of strawberries to the horns of their cattle as an offering to elves, who they believe adore the fruit. Who knew? All pictures were taken by me except the ones of Anne, which were taken by her mom, Melissa.
"I am the vine; you are the branches; if a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing...This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples." John 15
