The wild strawberry is one that might be readily recognized even by the rankest of amateurs. Of course, its the sweet red berries (there is a variety which has white berries) to which we will stoop; and, to do more then just examine. If we have patience, we will pick; and, after cupping a number of them in our hand, we will throw them back into our mouth; it is a special summer treat. The smallish flower has five white petals with a yellow cluster of its productive parts at its centre. The leaves and flowers do not grow on the same stem. The leaves, I read, can be thrown into boiling water for a tasty tea, rich in vitamin C.
