Keeking out ‘neath bright green leaf;

Ruby fruit entreats,

“Eat me” 

~

Wild Strawberry (Fragaria vesca) member of the Rosaceae family; one the chickens didn’t find! Useful little herb that has established well in the garden, bearing ruby red fruits though on the allotment they were all white! Roots traditionally used to treat diarrhoea and the “fruits” as a laxative.

Was so impressed to see small punnets of them in Rialto market Venice; a feast for the eyes, produce displayed like a work of art!
