FOTD–January 28, 2022: Italian Strawberry Tree from 1909


I found myself wandering around my local park and into this Italian-inspired garden that was planted in 1909 for the Kimberly Crest mansion. There is a very unique fruit tree in this garden; it is a strawberry tree, planted in 1909. You never know what you will find in your local park and gardens, unless you slow down and look! I am sharing photos of the tree for Cee’s photo challenge–Flower of the Day (FOTD).

  1. Very interesting and beautiful! Never knew that there was a vintage strawberry tree at Kimberly Crest! Guess I need to explore our local parks to enjoy nature thru your lens.
