Another picture from last summer. Yummy strawberries in my garden. The very little ones. They taste fantastic!

For all who wanted to know: This is a WILD strawberry. They look different from normal ones.

Description: Similar to the domestic variety, but the berries are quite a bit smaller, measuring about quarter inch (6 mm) in diameter. The Woodland Strawberry was widely cultivated in Europe before being largely replaced by the Garden Strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa and other hybrids), which have much larger berries. Woodland Strawberry fruit is strongly flavored, and is still grown on a small scale commercially for the use of gourmets. Unlike most commercial and garden cultivars of strawberries, Woodland Strawberries rarely form runners, and are usually propagated by seeds or division of the plants.

Where found: Throughout the Northern Hemisphere

Availability: Summer

Use: The fruits can be eaten raw or cooked into jellies and jams. It can also be baked into pies. An herbal tea made from the leaves, stems, and flowers is believed to aid in the treatment of diarrhea.

Do those have yellow flowers? I've seen a lot of wild strawberries growing in grass, but I was always told as a kid that they could be poisonous and not to taste them.
Oh, and nice shot, by the way. ^_^

As far as I remeber their blossoms are white. I guess there are different sorts of wild strawberries. Those ones are not poisonous and taste delicious.

We have wild strawberries where I am from. The don't look like that.

Maybe another variety?

Strawberries developed in the wild in Europe, American, and Asia. I suspect it is the European and not the wild part that makes your variety look so different. All the wild north American strawberries I have seen look like the cultivated variety.
Wiki tells me - The commercial variety was developed in Brittany France from Chilean and eastern north American strawberries.
