Wild Strawberries

The wild strawberries, Fragaria vesca, are now flowering.Photo of wild strawberry flowers

They are a member of the rose family. The fruits they produce are a lot smaller than the cultivated variety, but are still tasty. Wild Strawberries or “Smultronstället” is also the title of an excellent Ingmar Bergman film. The eponymous strawberry patch is symbolic of the nostalgia one feels for simpler times in one’s youth.
