2006 Slide Show, Photo 3
Taken along the Scoville Point Trail in late June. These are wild strawberry flowers in the sunshine after a short afternoon rain. The island continued to suffer near-drought conditions throughout most of the summer, however. The strawberry crop turned out rather poor. I must admit, though, that the raspberries and the blueberries both came in with excellent crops in summer 2006. That's a bit odd, since I was expecting raspberries to flourish in the dry weather and blueberries to get quickly burned out. But a few days of brief rain at the right time seemed to save the blueberries. More on this coming later.
