In early April the small white flowers of Barren Strawberry started to show themselves along the edges of the paths.  As the name suggests these flowers do not produce fruits or seeds. The sepals can be easily seen between the petals.

One remembered patch of Wild Strawberries, that do produce fruit, is just beginning to flower.  Another patch was found today!  Both places will be remembered later in the summer!  The flowers are slightly bigger and the sepals do not show between the petals.

Bees visit the starwberry flowers, however this one was hanging around a Water Aven.  It tolerated the first photograph taken, but after that a warning was given, a raised leg.
