also, my woodland strawberries. they're going pretty overboard with the fruit this year. consider that this whole colony started out as a single plant... but considering the amount of runners they have even now, it's not really surprising.

these things are ridiculously low-maintenance. i just water them sometimes during the hottest part of the summer, if i remember to. they completely also die every winter and then return in the spring, no matter how long the soil was frozen. how do they do it?? they're pretty obviously in precisely the sort of climate they evolved for. and the fruit are a tiny concentrated punch of strawberry right to your tongue. what's not to like.
