Strawberry Season

fresh strawberries

I've been playing with Photo Studio.

Our strawberries are just beginning to ripen. We've been hard pressed to gather some before the catbird. Catbirds, related to mockingbirds, love strawberries. Our catbird sits in our young apple tree and keeps an eye on the strawberries. We lose at least a handful of berries each year because he samples the crop. He's just lucky we like birds and are willing to share. We can't resist his voice, which sounds something like a kitten crying for its mom. Marina, our resident Dr. Dolittle, once had a talk with him. They mewed at each other for a minute and then he flew off. I wish she would learn enough of the language so that she could tell it not to hog the strawberries.
