Everyone has their own signs that indicate summer has arrived. And in this part of the world those signs aren’t always related to the weather (!) – it might be the start of Big Brother, Wimbledon coverage, or maybe the fact that you can get a range of fruit in the shops without paying an arm and a leg.
At drin pottery our first definite sign that summer is here, is the demand for our Strawberry range.
It usually starts with a strawberry bowl. You get a bowl and use it everytime you have fresh strawberries. And then you think that you really should have a strawberry jug to serve the fresh pouring cream. And then, really, you need a strawberry dinky bowl for the fresh strawberry jam. Then a strawberry plate for the scones, then strawberry mugs for the coffee to go with the scones…do you see what you started?
Every year jenny starts making the strawberry range a little earlier, but even so, at this time of year she becomes a little preoccupied with strawberries. A little obsessed with strawberries. Even a little tetchy if someone mentions strawberries…
Yes you could definitely say that strawberries are jenny’s first sign that summer has arrived.
