winter strawberries

home

 

i was having lunch in monterey park yesterday when a fruit peddler came to my table. he had a huge tray of strawberries and i couldn't resist buying from him because it reminded me of the many years i had to go buy strawberries for the bakery. i ended up paying $8 for a flat (after a bit o' chinese bargaining hehe).

 

things have come such a long way now. i remember when strawberries were so far and few in between during the winter months and none of them were sweet. and vendors would charge an arm and a leg for them!

 

but boy, these lil guys are super sweet and such beauties! plus i love the strawberry bokeh circles in the background. sweet.
