|Wild strawberry in meadow|

On this morning after a gentle full moon rain fell to the music of distant thunder a treat from the earth appeared:
The first wild strawberry of the season.
Sweet. Moist. Fresh!
A quick walkabout revealed dozens more about to ripen. This time next week it will be a breakfast of pancakes made from scratch, enhanced with the bounty of nature from a meadow that remains wild.
And some still wonder why I walk my woods and meadows at dawn most every day.
