Wild strawberries are ripe and I had a small feast of them today along Three Sisters creek.
Nothing compares to the intense flavour of these delightful little morsels. I don’t know if the strawberries are ripe at higher elevations yet, but the best location I ever found for them was along the Commonwealth Lake trail. I wrote a blog post about it here Her lips tasted like wild strawberries.
For flood mitigation, Three sisters creek has had a lot of excavation work completed along its banks and it no longer is the pretty little creek of pre-flood days. It used to be teeming with wild flowers which are now mostly gone, so I guess it’s a bonus to find the strawberries.
