According to the blog   Foodimentary which is all about food history, origins, and celebrations.

  • The ancient Romans believed that strawberries alleviated symptoms of melancholy, fainting, all inflammations, fevers, throat infections, kidney stones, bad breath, attacks of gout, and diseases of the blood, liver and spleen.

Now I just need to come up with all the health benefits of double cream! 🙂

While my mind was on Strawberries I noticed this nifty idea on Pinterest, taken from the blog Truebluemeandyou. You put the stones in your strawberry patch and the birds think they are strawberries, try to eat one and have no luck!

strawberriesThere are even directions , step by step on how to paint these rocks so you are able to trick the birds into thinking they are strawberries and leave the real strawberries alone.  I wish!
