    • Thank you Miriam! It surprises me to see &W photos make a difference in the feel of the picture.
      I didn’t know strawberries grew that quickly. How lovely to have your own strawberry patch and to eat from your own garden. I’m still working on keeping my plants alive. lol
      A few years ago we went strawberry picking in May near Monterey.

      • I grew strawberries in my old house. My current house doesn’t have enough space to do that, Esther. My daughter goes to blueberries farm every year. She took my granddaughter there and went with friends. My granddaughter has fun picking and eating right there. They grow raspberries in their garden.

  1. another great pair of photos together – and looking at them together – the striped sleeves san with the daughter’s stripes –
    and then the long vertical layers in the first photo – trees – shrub – bench = child – lead the eyes right into the strawberries and the finger pointing adds this extra element – along with the barefoot and posture on the bench above

    just my take 🙂

    • Thank you for the photo analysis. Very keen observation and interpretation; gave me a new way of seeing the pictures. I appreciate your insights.
      I didn’t notice, but I like stripe clothing for myself and my kids. They have their own taste now and spurn stripes. hahaha

      • 🙂 well stripes also look so good in black and white (just realized that)
        and for me – striped shirts are so hard to buy – I did just score two long-sleeved ones I like but sometimes I bring home a striped shirt and just hate it – so I have noticed that it can be so tricky

      • It’s hard to determine which stripes will look good. For me, I like thin to medium white stripes against navy or black or navy stripes against cream.
        I have a favorite one from Boden that has holes in it. It’s time for a replacement.
        Ohhhh, isn’t that a great feeling when you score something you like. It’s like a rush of dopamine. lol Hope you feel good and happy in your new shirts!!

      • well isn’t this fun talking abuja clothes and misc!
        hahaha – really fun
        and guess what? i wore one of the striped shirts tonight – with a light green over it and perfect! shirt was navy with white stripes and the black jacket allowed the sleeves to show a little near the wrist and the shirt was perfect feel at the waist (hate shirts that are too short and climb)
        and the other shirt is a rose pink with white stripes – not my normal color – but it called to me! ha – and don’t plan on wearing that until spring / have a njce pair of gray slacks to go with it on one of those spring days that is warm/cool!

        and yes -time to replace the one from
        Boden – if they still make it ?? i wonder if they do?

      • Yes, this is a fun thing to talk about!! I don’t look it, but I am a huge admirer of clothes and fashion. I’ve changed over the years and like clothes that don’t fall apart quickly. I used to chase trends when I was younger, but as a busy mom, I don’t have time nor the energy to keep up. lol
        Your striped shirts sound pretty and like how you styled them. I’m glad you tried a new color; you never know until you try and may be pleasantly surprised.
        Boden always has the striped Breton tops…the color choices are many. I should replace it before spring comes.
        Hope you are having a good weekend and staying well!

      • hi – well i am nkt that into clothes but in the other hand i do try and wear what is me at a given time and have been bringing in more colors for a while but find it can be hard.
        my supposed colors for my skin tone and eyes are soft mauve- maroon- purples and then a certain range of greens – most oranges and blues and pinks clash with me – for whatever that means.
        and i have had some stripes closures that did nkt work out at all- but then some that has. just like the storied item you will replace
        and thanks for sharing about your admiration for fashion and clothes – that is a fun thing to learn – and reminded me how we do switch gears when in mom mode! our focus can change but we stay getting enriched and all that!

      • Like you I’m trying to incorporate more color into my clothing! Bright clothing puts me in a cheerful mood and my new favorite sweater has a puffin on the front. lol. My kids approve of it 100%.It was hard at first since I was used to wearing black and denim most of the time.
        Hope you are having a good week and staying well!

      • Thank you! The B&W made the pictures look vintage to me. Interesting how filters make the difference. This was not easy when we had to develop pictures from film. Time consuming and experimental. These days printing out the digital prints is a pain; it’s all on my phone. One day I’ll upload some favorites and have them printed out. Shutterfly, Costco, Walgreens, and Target (some have photo centers).
