Nature Photo Tuesday: Wild Strawberries

Having no idea what I wanted to post today I decided to clean up my blog reading list and see which blogs are no longer active. Of course I was hoping that visiting so many blogs in one day would inspire some ideas for a post.  While I did get some clean up done, spending most of the morning on the blog reader page I got to see the new posts by my favorite bloggers as the put them up. I am really glad I did this. Because not only did I get to read a number of great posts, I also was given this post idea. 
Today I am linking up with Rochelle at A Family of Looney's for her new meme Nature Photo Tuesday. 

When I lived in Oregon I was delighted by all the wild blackberry and wild strawberry bushes near our home. That was 20 years ago, since then I haven't come across any until this weekend. 

I was really excited when I found these tiny wild strawberries growing in my daughters back yard. Can you see it hiding in the center of this shot? That is until she informed me they do not get any bigger than this. Oh well, I may not have fresh wild strawberries to eat but at least they are pretty.
