a bowl of strawberries

The idea of social distancing did seem rather daunting at first: our interests - rambling, table tennis (him), French Lit group, Photography group (me) - got cancelled.

The health club and pool closed.
It seemed sensible, for everyone's sake and being in an age-related at-risk group, to give up ambulance car driving.
The supermarket did not seem too appealing but there was Asda home delivery....

I guess we shall miss more and more seeing our friends.

However, Ray still has his novels to read, his TV programs to watch, his gardening to enjoy (I enjoy the garden too but I just sit in it); he has taken out a sub to The Times online. I have my photography (the best), meditation, exercises, reading, siesta(!). And nearly every day so far I have baked a cake.

So maybe it was, after all, strawberries, not cherries.........
Sounds like you will both have plenty to do. A nice image.

Lovely image and an interesting narrative Hazel hopefully we will all pull through this before the end of the strawberry season and we can enjoy them with friends in the sun:)

Luscious strawberries, mouthwatering!
Yes, staying home is so counter intuitive, isn't it? But we are doing it too and only going out when we really need food or to get help to my high-risk parents.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond I have the feeling that it might have been Annie Leibovitz but I'm not totally sure.

The lack of face to face social contact will hard to deal with. Look after yourselves Hazel & Ray.

I think we are lucky to have the internet. It certainly has its downside but, at times like this, it is like a lifeline to the outside world.

Perhaps Ray can can find you some brown, orange and green vegetables to photograph, by way of a contrast? :-)

Delightful and very tasty looking.
