Of all the beautiful surprises I’ve been met with in Queensland, local strawberries at mid-winter are certainly one of the sweetest. We’ve been loving them this week, along with impromptu picnics in our woolly jumpers. It’s only a little thing, but to me it’s comforting that when it comes to stawberry season at least, my Northern Hemisphere sensibilities and topsy-turvy Antipodean life are for once perfectly in synch.

If you like the ceramic punnets, they’re available from my shop here.

    As someone who has recently moved here from Adelaide I'm also enjoying the varieties of berries available in the middle of winter. Along with the beautiful warm sunny days - winter here is awesome! I've been on the lookout for great local blogs and yours is definitely that, I love all the pretty things you have on offer :)

    They look just amazing! Our version of winter strawberries is getting our summer bounty out of the freezer.
